Approving and rejecting comments individually works well enough when you have one or two comments. But what if you have several hundred comments that need to be approved?
The Manage Comments panel displays 20 comments at a time. You'll notice a check box next to each comment. Click the check boxes of the comments on which you want to execute the bulk action (or Shift-click to select contiguous comments); then click one of the four buttons at the top of the panel: Approve, Mark As Spam, Unapprove, or Delete.
WordPress performs the action instantly, and then you can move on to work on the next batch of 20 comments.
