Add bullets to text to make a list in Word for the web

Turn lines of text into a bulleted list by selecting the text and then clicking Home> Paragraph> Bullets. Each line or paragraph becomes a bullet in the list.

The Paragraph group with bullet and number options highlighted

Tip: Press Enter to move text to its own line, or press Enter twice to end the bulleted list.

Starting with a blank page?

  1. Place your cursor where you want a bulleted list.

  2. Click Home> Paragraph, and then click the arrow next to Bullets. Choose a bullet style and start typing.

Bullet Library drop-down menu

Press Enter every time you want a new bullet, or press Enter twice to end the bulleted list.

Tip: Word can create lists as you type. When you start a paragraph with an asterisk or a number 1., Word decides that you want to start a bulleted or numbered list.
