How to Use a Comment Insert for Selected Text in Microsoft Word


In Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010, you can easily use the buttons on the Ribbon to add a comment to your document. The comment sits in the right margin, directly next to the place in the document where you inserted it. If you select some text before adding the comment, then the text will appear in light highlighting, in the same color as the comment, and a small line will connect the highlighted text to the comment in the margin.

  • Select the text that you want to comment on.

  • Click the "Review" tab on the Ribbon.

  • Click the "New Comment" button on the Ribbon. Word will add a comment in the left margin and connect it to the selected text.
