How to Delete All Comments in Google Sheets

Google Sheets doesn't offer a built-in feature to select and delete multiple comments across the entire sheet or workbook in one click. 

A simple workaround for deleting all comments without individually deleting them is to duplicate the sheet. This method won't directly delete the comments from the original sheet but will create a new version of the sheet without any comments. Here's how to do it: 

1. Click on the Sheet's Name

Right-click on the sheet's name at the bottom of the window.

2. Duplicate the Sheet

2. Select "Duplicate" from the menu.

A duplicate of the sheet will be created as a new tab in the same Google Sheets document. This duplicate will not carry over comments from the original sheet.
