Generally in the LaTeX or beamer preamble, we add some packages and options for reference and enable them if required.

%\usepackage{someusefulpackage}

In Org mode export to LaTeX or beamer, when I specify options in the file header, how to comment them out

#+BEAMER_COLOR_THEME: dove
#+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage{usefulPkg}
#+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage{notRequired}
#+OPTIONS: toc:nil 

How can I comment out some of them ?

You should be able to simply add a # in front. You will have to restart Org though for this to take effect.

Note that 'restarting Org' is exactly what C-c C-c on one of these lines would normally do.

#+BEAMER_COLOR_THEME: dove
#+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage{usefulPkg}
# #+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage{notRequired}
#+OPTIONS: toc:nil

    @Anusha Unfortunately no :( But that is a separate question in any case. You should ask a new one (after marking this one as answered, of course) :) – Sean Allred Nov 12 '14 at 4:19

    If it's a separate question, it's always better to ask a separate question :) it's what keeps the site tidy. – Sean Allred Nov 12 '14 at 4:29
