2. Hacking Excel’s Built-in Features > 28. Customize Cell Comments

Customize Cell Comments

Cell comments enable you to place the electronic equivalent of a sticky note to any specified cell in a worksheet. Although many people use cell comments, many don’t know that cell comments are customizable.

When you insert a cell comment via Insert Comment, Excel will, by default, also insert the username for the PC being used. You can change this by selecting Tools Options General. The username will appear at the bottom of the dialog box that opens, where you can type whatever you want to be shown by default.

Although cell comments serve the simple purpose of displaying a message to either yourself or another user, you can customize the cell comment so that it better reflects your intentions.
