  1. Just select the whole sheet.
    Top left corner of your sheet. There where you select the whole workbook cells.
    Then right click, the delete comment. :)

    • @Franko unfortunately there is nothing any option on pressing right click to remove or delete comments when you select Top left corner of your sheet. There where you select the whole workbook cells. (till 2013)

      only there is a option to clear contents (which clear all contents)

      :) :) :)

  2. Thank you for the very helpful tip. The procedure would also be useful for obtaining other cell information and editing.
