Microsoft Word :
Working with Bullets and Numbering
You can quickly add bullets or numbers to existing lines of text, or you can automatically
create bulleted and numbered lists as you type.
If necessary, click the New File Icon to create a new Microsoft Word Document
Bulleting a List
To Create a Bulleted List:
1) Click the Bullets button on the Formatting toolbar
2) Notice your cursor is indented and a bullet now appears
3) Type the following text, pressing Enter after each entry
Clean [Enter]
Shop [Enter]
Pack [Enter]
Pay Bills [Enter]
Each time you press Enter, a new bullet is displayed.
To Turn Off Bullets or Numbering:
Press Enter 1 time, or click the bullet button.
When working in a bulleted/numbered list, there will be times that you want to create space
between items in the bulleted list.
To Create Space Between Items:
1) Position your cursor at the end of the word Clean
2) Press SHIFT+ENTER on the keyboard
This creates what we call a soft return. It tells Microsoft Word to end the line but not the
paragraph, thus not issuing a bullet.
