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.

Internet arachnids will want to check out the public beta release of a new World-Wide Web browser from Mosaic Communications <info@mcom.com>, the company formed from a number of the original developers of Mosaic. I've used their program, Mosaic NetScape, for about a week now, and I'm impressed with its speed, features, and reliability. It comes in versions for Macintosh, Windows, and several flavors of Unix.
