Word not setting up bullets properly

My Microsoft word isn't automatically setting up bullet points. It is really frustrating! Ever since I downloaded the Office Professional 2007 on my computer it stopped working.

When I do

1.) then hit enter

It does nothing. I have to manually set it up.

It also isn't automatically creating website links. For example when I type www.google.com it doesn't automatically make it a blue link.

Something isn't working with the setting I believe. Any help you can provide would be great!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Go to File / Options Proofing /Autocorrect Options / AutoFormat

and maybe as well in Autoformat as you type
