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.

Crashed until I uninstalled GLIMS

I have a lot of bookmarks in folders, so when viewing bookmarks I can select some within a folder and double click them to open just some of the many bookmarks that I have in a folder.
That's no longer possible.

And to delete one from the side bar it seems I have to ctl-click and use a drop down.

MAJOR setback in functionality.

Safari 6.1 seems to be very slow, and since I installed it I have experienced two "kernel panics" -- the only times that I have ever had this problem.

Yesterday I was unable to log into my online banking site. The bank told me that they are "experiencing problems with Safari right now".

Did I say two "kernel panics"? Make that three now.

Is there an easy way to downgrade to the previous version of Safari? If not, I may need to switch to Firefox.
