Deleting Multiple Comments in Excel

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011 by | Filed Under: MS Excel, MS Office Help

MS Excel: Delete Multiple Comments at Once

If you’ve got an Excel worksheet that contains a lot of comments, it can be a bit of a pain to remove them all when you’re done.

Think about it. If the worksheet is a large one and you’ve managed to accumulate quite a few comments, it’s going to be frustrating (to say the least) as you move to each cell containing a comment, then either using the Delete Comment button on the Review tab of the Ribbon or right-clicking on the cell then choosing Delete Comment from the menu.

Either way it’s repetitive and time consuming. You’ve just got to know that there’s a way to select and remove all comments at one time!

You’d be correct, and I’d like to look at a few options for multiple comment deletion in your Excel worksheets.

One idea is to select all cells containing comments in one step – Ctrl + Shift + O (the letter O, not the number zero).

You could then right-click on one of them and choose Delete Comment, or use the Delete Comment button on the Review tab.

Poof! In one quick click they are all gone – no fuss, no muss!

Another idea is to select every cell in the worksheet with Ctrl + A. From there, delete the comments with either a right-click or the Review tab.

You could use the Ctrl key and select all cells with comments individually and proceed with the deletion.

Whatever method of selection you use, the most important point is that you can skip the time used to delete comments individually.

Deleting comments from multiple cells at the same time is as easy as can be, if you simply start with the right cell selection.
