Access your AOL account on a regular Internet browser as opposed to a mobile device or application. This process should take only a few minutes to complete.

- Navigate to AOL
In your web address bar, type in www.aol.com and select search or press enter. This will take you to the AOL website.
- Log in to your account
Select the "Welcome, Sign in" button at the top right of your screen. Then enter in your AOL user name or AOL email address and your password and then select "Sign In."
- Open your mail
Finally, select the mail icon. You will be taken to your email inbox.
