Excel 2016 - What is this arrow pointing to a cell?

Excel 2016/Win10:

Hello, Experts!

In an Excel workbook, I have a cell that looks like it's tagged as having a comment. It contains that little red marker in the upper right. However, when I hover over the cell, I see the following:

Excel cell with arrow
Can anyone determine what that arrow represents and how I can remove it?

Thanks,
Steve

That worked. Thank you! But curious: What was that arrow? It does not look like the usual comment that displays in a yellow window.

To delete comments from multiple cells at once, follow these steps....

Press Ctrl+G to open Go To Special Window --> Make sure Comments radio button is checked and click OK. This will select all the cells with the comments inserted. Right click on one of the selected cells and choose Delete Comment.

That seems to be an empty comment inserted into the cells with zero height so you just see an arrow.

Hi again. I had the mods re-open the question so I could credit you with the assisted answer per the "empty comment". Thanks again!
