Code-Commenting Shortcuts

Instead of going to the Edit menu to comment out a section of code, you can add the comment command to the shortcut menu you access by right-clicking in a code window. Select View/Toolbars/Customize. On the Toolbars tab of the Customize dialog, click on the “Shortcut Menus” check box. On the toolbar that pops up, click on Code Windows… Code Window. On the Commands tab of the Customize dialog, select “Edit” in the categories list box. Drag and drop “Comment Block” and “Uncomment Block” from the “Commands list” box to the code window menu. Hit the “Close” button on the Customize dialog. Now go to a code window, drag the mouse over a section of code, right-click, and select “Comment code.”
