In this video from the Excel 2010 Tutorial series, School of Technology Program Coordinator, Justin Denton, teaches how to insert comments in a cell in Microsoft Excel 2010. This tutorial video is a great beginning step to your courses in technology at Rasmussen College.
The next topic is comments. And feel free, if you want to open up Excel, or if you've got Excel open, you can kind of work with these as well. So it's really quick and easy when you're working with comments, and everybody may already know how to insert a comment.
But when you have some data in a cell, maybe put 1234 or 1243, you right click on the cell and Insert Comment. It's quick and easy. It takes a couple seconds to insert comments. It's great for making annotations.
If I'm working on a grade book or something like that, I always put notes on the assignments to detail out what was wrong. When working on a report, usually if you make changes in Excel file, you can detail out what changes you might have made in the comment area, especially if you want to put a couple paragraphs or more.
You have the sizing handles on the actual comment, so I can drag it around. I can resize it and put it pretty much anywhere on the screen. If you don't want the comment anymore, just right click on the cell, and you can do Show, Hide Comments, Delete Comments. It gives you a few more options after you've inserted the comment.
