A comment may refer to any of the following:

HTML comment tag1. A comment is any text in a program's code, script, or another file that is not meant to be seen by the user running the program. However, is seen when viewing the source code.

Comments help make code easier to understand by explaining what is happening and can help prevent portions of a program from executing. In the image is an example of an HTML comment. See our nonexecutable statement page for a full definition and further examples of comments.

2. Hidden text in Microsoft Excel that enables users to make comments about cells and their values.

3. In general, a comment is a remark, suggestion, or another form of feedback about a product or service. If you would like to give Computer Hope a comment, contact customer service.
