      • I am having trouble reading the printed lines on Huffington/AOL News as the AVANTIS VIDEO is horrible and covers about 1/2 the screen.

        As repeated the AVANTIS VIDEO should be removed permanently as it blocks about 1/2 the screen of what I am trying to read with annoying videos and no X to remove it. I am constantly removing other ads in order to read and see photos from articles I may like. Frankly it is getting a bit much and free AOL was much better than paying for it and getting poor service. I have had this email address since 1988 so not happy when it creates problems, blocks email I wish to receive, etc.

        • Windows OS - Alt Key Numeric Codes have stopped filling in email composition field.

          Windows OS - Alt Key Numeric Codes have stopped filling in email composition field.

          I frequently use the Alt Key Code characters to impart a thought when corresponding with peers via email.
          Currently after moving the cursor to the text composition field and pressing the 'Left ALT' key the cursor disappears after the three digit numerical code is applied.
          I do find that now when the 'Left ALT' key is depressed along with an alpha character that is the first character in the AOL drop down options at the top pf the desktop it opens the corresponding title.
          I have…

          • write mail

            It would be convenient when a user has multiple accounts /user names if the "write mail" screen would display the user name currently logged in. Example:
            "Write mail from User1234"

              • larger font for mailbox

                Larger font size for the mailbox, listing new mail. It used to be larger before but it seems that after the update and it gives me option to select small, medium and large. Upon selecting large, still its to small of a font size for me. I cant read my email on mail box. Please add XL or XXL font selection.

                • The red number for new mail is much too small and we must strain to see it.

                  Please enlarge it. We keep checking for new mail and the number is hard to see.

                  • 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?

                              I am not able to import into Desktop Gold my favorites (bookmarks) from Chrome or Internet explorer. It seems as if you use a different protocol than the other browsers.

                                NEXT PAGE jumps down half an inch so that you have to wait for it to jump and try to click on it, sometimes missing and getting off the story by the ad appearing. I thought this was fixed after many did not like that maneuver but it went back to its annoying behavior again.

                                    • Stop destroying the Icons.

                                      First you destroyed the "smiley face" by giving it a moronic-looking open mouth. A smiley face is a smiley face. This new thing is not. Now I see you've destroyed the cute "wink." It's substitute is overblown and ugly. Are you deliberately trying to destroy aol? Or has aol been gobbled up by just another tasteless megawhatever?

                                        I would like to have AOL Gold on my ipad. I don't want to carry a large laptop with me. I can get my mail but I can't get into favorites. Please consider this suggestion
