Why don't you select the cell bracket and use Alt-CRV (Menu
Cell->Properties->Evaluable)? That keeps the Input cell but it won't be

How about a module or command called, say, "skipThis" that's defined in
the opening cells of a notebook, such that if you put


as the first line in any subsequent Input cell in the notebook, the
remainder of that Input cell will be skipped, i.e. not executed --
without your having to wrap the remainder of the cell in an explicit
If[ ] statement or similar coding.

Or, an inputOff statement such that


as the first line of any Input cell will turn off execution of any
subsequent Input cells (and perhaps the remainder of the cell containing
the statement), until an Input cell beginning with


is encountered.

[I trust the utility of these will be reasonably obvious . . . ]
