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.

 
 

No Issue Labor Day

Send Article to a Friend

No Issue Labor Day -- In the continuing administrative saga, our planned server move last week was delayed by the just-resolved US West strike, so the move will happen in the future. More immediately, we're taking the next issue off, nominally because it's the Labor Day holiday in the United States, and what better way to celebrate than by not working? In fact, Tonya and I have friends visiting and Jeff Carlson is working to finish his PalmPilot Visual QuickStart Guide for Peachpit Press. If we're lucky, the weather won't decide to follow the stock markets into the doldrums. [ACE]
