How do I turn on/turn off email signature in the AOL software?

You can create up to 5 email signatures within the AOL software. In addition, you can set one of your preferred email signatures as the default signature. This signature will be added automatically to the end of every email that you send. If you do not wish to have a default signature, you can disable this option at any time.

To know how to enable/disable a default email signature, click the appropriate link from the ones given below, depending on the version of the AOL software on your computer.
