For any reason, when you want to use a comment, all you need to do is to select the cell that you want your comment to be associate with. Selecting “Insert Comment” from right-click menu.

After you insert your comment, It will have your user info on it by default. You can either let it stay or delete it. You can input your comment inside. After you click on aywhere else in the sheet, your comment will be hidden by default. You can toggle “Hide/show Comment” from right-click menu.
