About This Shortcut 

If there is no comment in the active cell, a new threaded comment will be created. If a comment already exists in the cell, the comment box will open.

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.
