    The default shape of the cell comment in Excel is rectangular, which is indeed boring. You may use different shapes as per your choice.

    • First you need to add the ‘Change Shape’ command to your Quick Access Toolbar (if not added already). To do this click the down arrow at the top left corner of your spreadsheet (Next to Office button) and select ‘More Commands…’ . Now select ‘All Commands’ and then scroll to locate ‘Change Shape’. Select it and click the ‘Add > >’ button and then click OK.

    • Right click on the cell where you have inserted the comment→ Click on Edit Comment.


    • A rectangular box will show up with the comment, click on the border of the box.


    • Go to the ‘Change Shape’ button on the Quick Access Toolbar and choose a shape of your choice.
