Is there any simple way how to see all my comments in 1 windows?

What you want is IDA Marker.

Alt+M to make a marked comment at current cursor location

Ctrl+M to bring up a window showing all marked comments

  • That help if I already marked ... I have lot of comments tgat I not narked, and I want to watch them all

  • Script it. Interface with IDAPython to iterate every single instruction and use GetCommentEx to see if there's already a comment there. If there is, print out the address, instruction, and comment

    I'm amazed there isn't just a "Comments" dialog that has a list of your comments. If you've commented against a line you're instinctively quite likely to want to go back there. Especially considering the eyewatering price of IDA this seems like a basic feature that's lacking.
