      • allow spelling changes within spell check.

        after generating an email, one uses aol spell check and comes across a misspelled word-
        if the correct word is not in the suggested list, one must close spell check and manually correct the spelling in the email.
        spell check should allow for changes to be made dynamically in the box where the misspelled word shows up.

            • Back up and restore the Personal Filing Cabinet so that it can be transferred to a new computer!!!!!!!!!

              Now you can only access the PFC on the original computer. What happens if your hard drive crashes or you get a new computer? You lose all your saved emails. You used to be able to save the Organize folder and transfer it. Bring that option back!!! Also, let users know when you add things like this through an update rather than discovering on our own.

              • Format control of emails page

                I want to see and control more emails at once than the new gold allows and show only what I want to see

                On aol anywhere I can
                - change the size and adjust how many emails show up on the list
                - use one hand and click on the side boxes to delete a large number of emails as a first run through
                - not have all the icons take up a quarter of the page

                    • Add commas to addresses in groups

                      I send newsletters to 300 people once a month. Addresses often change and I delete my group and create a new one from time to time. Each time I have to add commas to the addresses one by one in step 3 of the Manage Group page. Can this be done automatically?

                      • Stop disconnecting the Calendar when I am still logged into AOL. Fix the Calendar Alert problem that has failed on May 1, 2018

                        Stop telling me the Calendar alert problem is a known problem since May 1, 2018 and it may get fixed sometime this year or perhaps this decade or perhaps this century or perhaps never.

                                          Comment section doesn't show my Nickname automatically. I need to type it in manually. This problem doesn't happen before. I already talked to AOL's Technical Support and was advised to submit a feedback. My AOL Desktop Gold is updated.
