  1. Default Browser: I asked, & AOL support answered.. Now add it to AOL HELP.

    Those answers all assume AOL IS NOT CONSTANTLY STEALING IT AWAY!! & you've Ignored EDGE, VIVALDI & DUCKDUCKGO

    P.S There's really a better way

    1.Click the start menu, and in the search box, search for Default Programs.
    2.Click on Default Programs.
    3.Click Associate a file type or protocol with a program
    4.In that Window, find .htm & .html
    5.Click on .htm, then 'Change program' (at top)
    6.Click on YOUR PREFERRED BROWSER, click OK.
    7.Repeat for html

  3. PLEASE! Please switch the "Delete All" button with the "Delete" button on SPAM folder.

    New mail delete is on right side and on spam it's delete all on right side. I have unwillingly deleted all on spam when all I wanted was to delete one mail. Too confusing and darn frustrating because I can't recover what was deleted.

  5. Bring back feature to automatically start AOL when it crashes

    There was a box to check in 9.8 if you wanted AOL to automatically restart after a crash.

  6. Thank you + font

    Thank you for now allowing emojis to be used in sent emails and also for emblems/crests in letter headings to be included on emails.
    Is it possible to link the fonts on word processors to fonts on sent emails? This was done on earlier versions of AOL. Commercial script and Cloister Black would be welcomed by me.

  7. 'Reply to' feature

    It would be great to have a 'Reply to' feature. In other words, if user A sends an email to user B and user B replies, the email goes back to user A. If user A could have a 'Reply to' feature e.g.,, user A could insert a different screen name for replies. I use AOL GOLD for our home owners association and most people have the tendency to reply to an email rather than forwarding it to an email address specified in the body of the email. In this case, a 'Reply To' feature would be great.

  8. On the AOL APP for Android phones, there is ability to select: ALL, Read, UNRead, etc..

    when I go to ANY email folder on the phone APP, I can choose 'view UNREAD' or others

    This would be a VERY NICE enhancement for the Desktop.

  11. Email "Emergency Brake."

    There used to be a "stop sending" button on emails. Example, you click SEND and suddenly realize you forgot something, used to be able to stop sending, fix it, and send it again. Would be really nice to have again.

  12. Displaying "Tags" in Gold Browser doesn't work.

    I.E. See photo at http://cliptank.com/PeopleofInfluencePainting.htm

    Every face is "Tagged". I.E., Firefox & Chrome all show the "Tags", AOL Gold browser does not.

  13. While writing an email, my font is "Segoe ,," yet it is not in the font list..

    When I pasted other text into the email, it pasted in as my default "Comic Sans MS". There was no way to change it to match the "Segoe" font...

    If you can *identify* a script, why can't you allow us to use it???

  14. Not so much an idea, just a wrong error msg.

    When clicking on an image in an email.. (not sure if attached or embedded, as shows both names at bottom and image in the email)
    Got on twice on two different images..

    I get a web page with this error msg.
    GAH!
    DEFAULT Report ID: webjas-vae192-20180622-224942-

    There was a problem handling your request. An unspecified error has occurred.

    Yeah, I know, I shouldn't click on embedded images ;-) ..

  17. Since comments are closed on my issue...

    I had reported the following: "Report a Bug" has no confirmation/follow-up, so here is the issue:
    I reported this issue in the "Report a Bug" area. Every attachment I attempt to download is corrupted. For example, a 65.7 KB Excel file saves as 2 KB, and no information is present in the file upon opening. This has happened in the last 6 files I downloaded, the most current being today. This is TOTALLY unacceptable! Luckily, I can forward to my work email address...what about the people who have no other email address? This needs fixed immediately! I was asked to…

  19. Send Feedback Forum Disorganized

    This Feedback forum was a nice idea, but has become useless. New posts need to be on top, posts need a date. We're confused as to what happened and when. Recently Aol pulled back the Beta version, but to what? Where are we now? How are we supposed to help you if you don't help us?

  20. Very ODD reappearance of UNWANTED Address book ID

    A few releases back, a contact that I write to stopped getting my emails.
    I found that their emails were going to their ALTERNATE ID, which i had in my address book for them.
    I deleted that alternate ID, SAVED the changed address book entry,
    BUT THEN -- the next new desktop release RESTORES that ALTERNATE ID -- AND again, uses it as the primary to send to!! ...

    This is re-occurring at each of the last 4 releases!!
    I delete that no-longer-wanted ALTERNATE ID, and it comes back on the next release !?!
