How do I create a list in Word Online?

  1. Type * (asterisk) or Shift+Ctrl+L to start a bulleted list or 1. to start a numbered list, and then press SPACEBAR or the TAB key.

  2. Type some text.

  3. Press ENTER to add the next list item.

    Word Online automatically inserts the next bullet or number.
