I don't know about Office 2007, but in Office XP and Office 2003,
ctrl-shift-L will start a bulleted list.

Alternatively, depending on which font you are using, alt-0149 (use numbers on the numeric keypad) will create a small circle bullet.  You could also have a look at the Insert-Symbol feature to find the codes for other bullet symbols.

Thanks a lot for your kind, prompt tip.

I just want to insert a default (which is already displayed on the menu bar, the solid black circle) using a shortcut, if any.

Thanks!

ctrl_shoft+L is working fine. Is there anyway to insert the numbered list, using a shortcut?

Thanks!

Sorry, I'm not aware of a specific shortcut to do this.

Word does include shortcuts ctrl-alt-1, ctrl-alt-2 and ctrl-alt-3 for styles Heading 1, Heading 2 and Heading 3 respectively.  This means that it would be possible to redefine one of the heading styles to be a numbered list and then use the appropriate shortcut.  But I wouldn't recommend doing this.
