How do lists work in Microsoft Word
Multilevel lists are useful for organizing and presenting information in a hierarchical way. You can create multilevel lists in Microsoft Word by following these steps:

1. Type out your list items, with each item on its own line. You can use any type of list, such as bulleted, numbered, or alphabetized.
2. Select the list items that you want to format as a multilevel list.
3. On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click the arrow next to Multilevel List, and then click Define New Multilevel List.
4. In the dialog box that appears, choose the list level that you want to modify by clicking on it. You can change the number style, the alignment, the font, and the indentation for each level.
5. To add more levels to your list, click on the level that you want to demote, and then press Tab. To promote a level, press Shift+Tab.
6. To change the appearance of your list, you can also select one of the predefined list formats from the menu under List num style.
7. Click OK to apply your changes and close the dialog box.
