Microsoft has updated Office 2011 to version 14.4.4, a short but sweet maintenance release that should alleviate a few frustrations. The update improves keyboard language detection in Word to prevent incorrect updates, and adds descriptions for supported account types in Outlook to help you choose correctly when configuring an Office 365 account. It also fixes an issue in PowerPoint that caused slides to display random artifacts when displayed in Presenter View mode on a screen with a high resolution (such as a 4K monitor). (Free update from the Microsoft Download Center or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 113 MB, release notes, 10.5+)
Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.

Comments about Microsoft Office 2011 14.4.4
Considering my experience with the Win7 morass I'm not the least bit surprised.
I'm off now shutting down my mac.......
Couldn't just shut down my mac, it refused to do so due to an ongoing installation, which was going on forever. I had to do a cold reboot. Tried the whole procedure again, but with the exact same result.
After this I ran Disk Utility which reported repairs were needed (of course) on my disk structure. After the repair cycle from my Recovery Partition (big thanks to Apple for this!), I checked if Office 2011 would still work. Lo and behold, it had been updated and was working properly!?!
Big DUH to M$!
Just wondering when the new office for Mac is coming out???
