    Changing format of comments

    This is a trivial but irritating problem that I'm sure can be solved,
    but I've tried everything I can think of.

    The problem is that when I select a cell in Excel 2000 (Windows XP) to
    insert a comment, the Comment box is pre-formatted with my name, a
    colon and a hard return, and it's also set to bold-face.

    So, every time I add a new comment I have to delete all the text and
    set it to non-bold, which is somewhat time-consuming (although not as
    time-consuming in the aggregate as the amount of time I've spent trying
    to find the setting that started all this), and also irritating.

    Where can I turn off or reset this default format?

    Thanks.

    Changing the format in comments

    If you want to permantly change the format of comments, go to the windows control panel, select display, appearance, advanced. Select tooltips and choose the format that you want.

    BUT ........ this will change the format of all tooltips for all your windows applications.

    This will not change existing comments.

    From Excel HELP:

    "You can change the name that appears when you insert new comments, but you
    can't keep Microsoft Excel from including your user name."

    Irritating is putting it mildly!
