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.

 
 

RSI Network Newsletter

Send Article to a Friend

RSI Network Newsletter subscribers might have had problems receiving issue 17. Craig O'Donnell <dadadata@world.std.com> writes: "Thanks to a full moon and an unfortunate series of slip-ups somewhere out in Net-Land, the 17th RSI Network Newsletter mailing went awry. Some people didn't get a newsletter, but instead got a crabby message from some guy and ten or fifteen bounced mail messages. Some people got both the issue and the junk. I don't think anyone knows what happened but it's been fixed."

The RSI Network Newsletter discusses issues and ideas relating to repetitive stress injuries. If you want to subscribe, send a mail message to <majordomo@world.std.com> with this line into the body of your message (the Subject line doesn't matter):

subscribe rsi

To remove yourself from the newsletter list, send email to the same address and use as the command:
