Show more comments per page in wordpress backend

I have a very old site which I hardly bother to update. I opened the dashboard after about several months only to see that there are 653 comments. 90% of them were spam messages. Now I had to delete them or mark them as spam.

Wordpress prior to 2.8 versions used to show only 20 comments per page. But this limit is no more a limit from versions after 2.8.

If you want to increase the number of comments to be listed per page, then  follow these simple instructions:

  1. Open Comments in your wp-admin dashboard
  2. Click on the Screen Options on the right-top corner 
  3. It will open a slide-down menu.
  4. Change the number from 20 to any number that you want.
That's it. You get as many comments as you want in one page and avoid pagination process. Now you can delete, spam it or approve it in bulk very easily.
