Non-bulleted Items Within a Bulleted or Numbered List in Word

When you're creating a bulleted or numbered list in Word or PowerPoint, you might want an item to appear on the list without a bullet, like this:

  • Non- Fiction
  • Fiction
    Science Fiction
  • Audiobooks

To do this, press the Shift key and the Enter key; this will start a new line without a bullet.

The next time you press the Enter key, the new line will continue the bulleted or numbered list.
