What is America Online?

America Online is the most popular "online service" in the world. An online service is a self-contained entity that allows you to connect to the electronic world. Within a service you can send and receive email, join clubs, "chat" with people around the world, get answers to questions, "download" new software (which means to copy it from their computer to yours), set up a web site, and much more.


An alias to America Online is inside the Internet folder on your hard disk. If you decide to use AOL, drag this alias to the Desktop so it's more convenient to connect. There are a few tips about using America Online in the Problems and Solutions section of this book, pages 289–291.
