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.

 
 

Take Control News: Free Copy of Thanksgiving Ebook!

Send Article to a Friend

The days in November are flipping by ever more quickly, with the Thanksgiving holiday on 27-Nov-08 fast approaching in the United States. Although we will be hard at work publishing TidBITS and Take Control ebooks for the remaining weeks, we're not worried by the extra effort necessary to prepare a full-fledged Thanksgiving dinner for my extended family, thanks to the schedules, shopping lists, and recipes in Joe Kissell's "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner," which we first published in 2006 and tweaked slightly last year.

Needless to say, the topic hasn't changed at all, so the book is still entirely relevant. Although it's one of our best in terms of clarity and utility, we've so far had trouble marketing what is essentially a holiday cookbook. We knew it was a risk when we started, but we're still disappointed that the book hasn't been able to help more people.

So, to help reduce cooking stress and increase the tastiness of Thanksgiving dinner everywhere, we're giving away "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" from now through Thanksgiving Day. Just purchase any other Take Control ebook and you can get the $10 "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner" for free. Use this link to load the necessary coupon code and start shopping at our alphabetized catalog page.
