Here’s a question from Diane:
I would like to go ahead and create a bulleted list in Word. By default, all bullets (or numbers if that’s a numbered lists) are colored black. Question is whether there is a way to switch the bullets to a different color, say red?
Sure Diane. Please read on this tutorial which is applicable for all Office 2016 applications.
