Delete All Comments in Word in a Flash

You needn't clear comments in a Word document one by one. Instead, bring out the big guns to delete all of them at once:

1. Chose Tools > Keyboard Shortcuts.

2. Under Categories, select Tools.

3. Under Commands, select DeleteAllCommentsInDoc.

4. With the insertion point in the "Press new keyboard shortcut" field, press keys to create a keyboard shortcut. (I use Control-7)

5. Click the Assign button.

6. Click OK.

You can now press your keyboard shortcut to zap out the comments.

The steps above work in Word 2008; they likely work nearly as described in older versions of Word.

 
 

Apple Sells Three Million iPads in Three Days

Send Article to a Friend

Apple announced that it sold three million Wi-Fi-only iPads in the three days after the launch of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad, twice the number of Wi-Fi-only units of the third-generation iPad that were sold in its first weekend in March 2012. That means that Apple sold 1.5 million each of the Wi-Fi-only and cellular models of the third-generation iPad (which sold three million all told in that first weekend), and bodes well for sales of the cellular models of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad when those start in a few weeks.favicon follow link
