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.

By leaps and bounds, SoftArc Inc. has gobbled up market share in the growing electronic messaging industry. SoftArc reports that, according to both Electronic Mail & Messaging Systems (EMMS) and Electronic Messaging News, the Ontario company is the number four provider of LAN-based email, with its FirstClass email and conferencing software. There are officially over three million FirstClass users now, compared to 1.4 million just six months ago. CE Software's QuickMail and Lotus Notes, two products considered leading contenders for the email market, are in sixth and seventh place, respectively, according to EMMS. SoftArc is also credited with a 500 percent growth in installed users over the fifteen months ending in March. [MHA]
