About This Shortcut 

If there is no note in the active cell, a new note will be created. If a note already exists in the active cell, this shortcut will open the note.

Note: In Excel 365, the original "comment" was renamed to "note" and a new "threaded comment" was added to allow back and forth comments by reviewers.
