Change default Cell comments font size

How do I change the default font size of cell comments?

By Neale Blackwood

You need to change a Windows setting to achieve this. Please note this will change the font size of other objects defined as “ToolTip” in applications. You may want to change it back, so make a note of the setting before you change it.

  1. This applies to Windows XP:
  2. Go to Start, click Settings then click Control Panel (Control Panel may already be on your Start menu)
  3. Double click the Display icon
  4. Go the Appearance tab
  5. Click the Advanced button
  6. Click the Item drop down and select ToolTip
  7. You can now change the font size and colour
  8. Click OK, click Apply and then click OK again

All new comments will have the new default settings, but existing comments will not change.
