Hide MS Word comments on the right margin

I have added a few comments to the body of my text on a few words. But the comment boxes with my name and the comments with red border are also on display.

Question: How can I have these red boxes not to show?

FYI, using ctr+D I have added ........ dotted lines to the words with comments so user will know where to hover to see the comments.
I am trying to use as "Tool Tip" or "Text Tip" used in other programs. Is there some way of doing this if comments cannot used for this purpose?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Should be able to hide the RHS by going to Review / Reviewing tab on the ribbon and clicking on comments  or show final.

However other people may see the comments dept on their word settings.

Furthermore hover tip may depend on the ver of word used.
An alternative might be to add a small shape as an inline object and add your comment to the Alt Text property of the shape....
