How to add a bullet point on Google Docs
Google Docs makes creating documents online simple. (Jupiterimages/ Images)

If you have a Google account, Google Docs is a free service that allows you to create documents, spreadsheets and presentations online. You can upload existing files to your Google Drive and edit and save them in Google Docs. It's really simple to share your document, either by emailing your contacts a link to it or attaching the document itself to an email message. Other internet users can be invited to edit your document and more than one person can view and edit a document simultaneously, making this service ideal for online collaborations. The service has all the basic toolbar buttons you would expect from any word processing tool, making it simple to do everything from changing the font to creating a bulleted list.
