I found the link to change the default Comment format in Excel for Office 365 for Non Windows 10 and Window 10.

https://www.extendoffice.com/documents/excel/1976-excel-change-default-comment-format.html

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/format-worksheet-comments-eb1b7d0a-6fe0-4a0c-b1e6-f1d68e6...

 

But i cannot change it in Windows 10... i tried asking Microsoft helpdesk and they are saying the instruction above is for Office 365 while mine is Microsoft Office Home and Student 2019. 

 

Can anyone revert if we can change the default comment format in Excel for Microsoft Office Home and Student 2019 using Windows 10?

What is called Comments in articles you mention, now is called Notes. Comments are for conversation, Notes are for annotation.

Formatting shall work for Notes. Not available for Comments.
