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.

 
 

Need more toner?

Need more toner? Apple has introduced the LaserWriter Pro 810 Extended Capacity Toner Cartridge (item M3602G/A) to replace that printer's original cartridge, offering smaller toner particles, improvements in the charging area, and longer page life. (The cartridge prints an average of 13,000 letter size pages at five percent coverage, as opposed to 12,000 pages for the original.) When Apple took the LaserWriter Pro 810 off suspension earlier this year (see TidBITS-233) the company announced plans to offer an improved toner cartridge at a later time; it should be available by the time you read this.
