Steps to add AOL shortcut on your desktop

Before you begin this process, just make sure that your device is having the AOL desktop gold app already. If you have it, make sure that it is available in the taskbar of your device. If not, you need to first add it to your device's taskbar and then go ahead with the process to create its shortcut:

1.      On the taskbar present at the bottom of your device, click on the arrow next to the clock

2.      This will expand the menu of your device

3.      From the Expand menu, you need to right-click on the "AOL Desktop Gold icon"

4.      Now, you just need to select "Create desktop shortcut"

After you have created the shortcut, you just need to access the app by tapping it and then log into your account by providing your AOL mail login details.

If the shortcut goes missing from your desktop, then you can re-add it by repeating the same process discussed above.
