    When I open the browser and on the right side lower corner of it I can see the (Open Favorites) which please remove that option because it blocks my scroll bar to the right side or if you can move that from the right side lower corner.

  2. Remove Twitter Link from Help Menu

    I noticed that in all current builds of ADG, on the main 'Help' menu, there is a link to AOL Desktop on Twitter. The link leads to a profile that doesn't exist. I would recommend one of the following fixes: Either remove the link from the Help menu -or- Rename the link to reflect Twitter's rebrand as "X" and have the link go to a profile that exists. Dead links look bad, so just wanted to let the team know I found this. Thanks in advance.

  3. Update the System Requirements on the beta page.

    I remember when 11.0 first started, Windows Vista was supported and was there on the System Reqs. Then, it disappeared the moment Vista went out of support in April 2017. Yet, I still see Win 7 and 8.x on there and never saw Win 11. Please update. 7/8.x has been out of support since Jan of last year (2023). :) that’s all.

  5. AOL Desktop for the UK

    Release AOL Desktop Beta to other countries such as in the UK. I am currently a Beta tester from the UK and I would like to see AOL make a come back instead of if being killed off. Also bring back AIM! Why was this killed off?

  8. Why again??

    Why is it that AOL is always changing things on our welcome screen that we don't care about but don't do ANYTHING about the problems we tell them about? It makes no sense.

  9. AOL Desktop Gold

    I appreciate so much Kevin's help tonight. He is the best technician that I have had from AOL in forever!!
    I do not like the added feature of (Views) in the new AOL. It is a real nuisance to me! Please consider deleting it from my account.

  14. what's new option

    Every day, when signing onto aol desktop gold, I click on the what's new icon to see if there is anything new that I should know about. I always like new things, but I would like to know when the next build of aol will be available and what will be included.
    At this moment in time, I have no way of knowing when the new build will be available.

    Let us know when the next build will be available and what will be included. An email would be nice.

  15. Improve aol desktop gold performance

    I found a way to improve aol desktop gold performance if you have a mechical hard drive, like I do and are running windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, or 11.
    Turn off superfetch. I could be wrong, but it seems like superfetch might be inferring with aol desktop gold although the software still writes to a database file and still has issues.

  18. Posting feedback or reporting a bug

    There should be a way to attach a screenshot when either posting feedback or reporting a bug. It would make things a lot more easier.

  19. aol desktop gold writing to hard drive

    Looking at the disk activity under resource monitor, under task manager, I can confirm that aoldesktop.exe is writing to the hard drive.

    What is the software doing? It'd be great to get more info about what is going on exactly. The only theory that I have is that the software makes a backup so in the event that the browser crashed, having a the browser recover your info would seem like a good idea.

    I think aol 9.8 had this and most browsers do. There should be an option to customize aol desktop gold writing to a hard drive.

  20. AOL Breached in December 2022 and members not told

    Inform all members of breaches immediately so we can change our passwords. McAfee informed me in February of the system breach. A lot of Email contacts can be affected in two months. I have since changed my password twice
