    I have had an account with AOL for years without a problem but when I click on my desktop icon it will not open. What has happened and how do I fix it?


    Hi there,

    AOL shortcut was created on your desktop. Due to some technical issues, the configuration might have changed. Do not worry. I will help you to re-create another shortcut of AOL on your desktop for one time click and work,
    When the AOL software is installed, a shortcut is created on your Windows desktop, allowing you to quickly and easily sign on. If your desktop icon is missing, or if it points to a version of the software other than the one you would like, follow these instructions.

    To create an AOL icon on your desktop


    1. On the Start menu, select Programs, then click Windows Explorer (on Windows XP, select All Programs, Accessories, then click Windows Explorer).
    2. Browse to the folder that has your AOL software (e.g., C:\Program Files A File is an electronic document which can be text, pictures, sounds, videos or whole programs. Reminder: Never download files from someone you don't know. Files may contain dangerous Trojan Horse programs that may capture your AOL password, severely damage your computer, or contain objectionable graphics. To report a violation in an attached file, please forward the e-mail to screen name TOSReports.\America Online 9.0).
    3. Click the file waol.exe once to select it.
    4. On the File menu, click Create Shortcut.
    5. Drag the new shortcut icon (Shortcut to waol.exe) to your Windows desktop.

    Notes


    ·
    You can rename your shortcut to something more meaningful to you. Simply press F2 on your keyboard while the shortcut is selected, type a new name, then press ENTER.
    ·
    To delete a shortcut, drag it to the Recycle Bin. Your AOL software will still be on your computer.

    That should work. For further reference, click the link;
