Shortcut to Add a Comment in Excel

Adding a comment in Excel is a great way to leave a note for yourself or for another user of the spreadsheet. Comments can be added to cells, ranges, or objects. To add a comment, select the cell, range, or object, and then click the Insert Comment button on the Review tab of the Ribbon. You can also right-click the cell, range, or object, and then click Insert Comment.

When you add a comment, a small comment box appears next to the cell, range, or object. Type your comment in the box, and then click outside the box to close it. The comment box will remain open until you click outside it or press Esc.

To view a comment, hover over the cell, range, or object. The comment will appear in a small box. To edit a comment, hover over the cell, range, or object, and then click the Edit Comment button that appears. To delete a comment, hover over the cell, range, or object, and then click the Delete Comment button that appears.

You can also format comments. To format a comment, right-click the comment, and then click Format Comment. In the Format Comment dialog box, you can select the options that you want.

If you want to prevent other users from adding, editing, or deleting comments, you can protect the sheet. To do this, click the Protect Sheet button on the Review tab of the Ribbon. In the Protect Sheet dialog box, select the options that you want, and then click OK.
