Customize the navigation on your SharePoint site

If you're the site owner or have edit permissions on a SharePoint site, you can customize the navigation for your site to give users quick access to sites and pages. You can add, edit, or remove links on the left-hand menu on a team site (also known as the Quick Launch menu), the top menu on a communication site or hub site, or the hub site navigation bar that appears on all sites associated with a hub site.

Notes: 

  • If your site has been customized by the owner, the left-hand menu or top menu may not be available.

  • In SharePoint, you can only customize the left-hand menu on a team site at this time unless you are in classic mode.

  • You need owner or edit permissions to make changes to the navigation of a site.

  • In SharePoint Server 2010, you can customize the top link bar for site navigation.

Select your version of SharePoint below for the steps to customize the navigation on your SharePoint site.

Note: Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the First Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

For sites in site collections where publishing features are enabled, you have more navigation options to choose from, including showing subsites and displaying the same navigation as a site's parent site navigation (also called inheriting parent navigation). If you don't see these options, check with your site administrator.

  1. On the site where you want to change navigation settings, click Settings Office 365 Settings button , and then click Site settings.

  2. On the Site Settings page, click Look and Feel, and then click Quick Launch or Top Link bar..

  3. Choose options for the Quick Launch or Top Link bar, for example, to show subsites or to display the same navigation as the parent site (inherit parent navigation).

The links that appear on the left side of your site are called Quick Launch links. By default, Quick Launch includes links to recent items as well as important items like lists and libraries. The links at the top, in the Top Link bar, typically show subsites under your site.

Quick Launch

When you create a new list or library, a new link appears automatically under Recent on Quick Launch. Only the five newest links appear in the Recent section.

The Recent link on the Quick Launch displays the recently created pages, lists, and libraries

Note: When you create a new page, it doesn't automatically appear in Quick Launch. You have to create a link to the page and add it yourself.

Top Link bar

You can also customize the navigation links on the Top Link bar of your site to change capitalization, rearrange the order, or add links to the subsites that users visit most often.

Top navigation of a site

The top link bar helps users of your site navigate to other sites in the site collection by displaying a row of tabs at the top of pages in the site. The top link bar is also referred to as global navigation, because it can be the same across all of the sites in a site collection. However, subsites can be configured to not display in the top link bar of the parent site. The options available to you for configuring your top link bar will vary depending on whether the publishing features are enabled for your site collection.

Following is an example of a top link bar from the fictitious Contoso site. Marketing, Sales, and Finance are subsites of the Contoso parent site.

Top link bar

Do you have the necessary permissions to configure navigation?

To manage navigation for a site you must have at least the permissions obtained by being added to the default Designers SharePoint group for the site. You have the necessary permission to configure navigation for your site if Site Settings is an option on the Site actions menu Site Actions Menu and on the Sites Settings page you see the Navigation command under Look and Feel (on non-publishing sites, you will see the Quick Launch and Top link bar commands under Look and Feel instead of Navigation.
Site Settings Site Menu

Is publishing enabled for your site?

Before you start to configure the navigation for your site, you need to determine whether or not the publishing features are enabled for the sites in your site collection. It is important to know whether or not your site is a publishing site because the navigation configuration options for a publishing site are more extensive than those available for a non-publishing site.

Depending on which type of site you have, you will see different navigation options on the Site Settings page. Here's how you can quickly determine which type of site you are working with:

  1. On the Site Actions menu Site Actions Menu , click Site Settings.

  2. Look at the list of links on the Site Settings page under Look and Feel.

    • If you see a link titled Navigation, then you are working with a publishing site and you can configure your site using the Navigation Settings page.
      Navigation

    • If you see links titled Top link bar and Quick Launch, then you are working with a non-publishing site and you have a more limited set of navigation configuration options available to you.
      Look and Feel

Breadcrumb navigation

You cannot configure the breadcrumb navigation. Following is an example of breadcrumb navigation.
Breadcrumb

You can configure the top link bar for a site to use the same top link bar as the parent site. In other words, the subsite inherits the top link bar from the parent site. Alternatively, you can configure the top link bar for a site to be unique to that site

The options and procedures for configuring inheritance for the top link bar differ between publishing sites and non-publishing sites. For information about how to determine whether or not the publishing features are enabled for the sites in your site collection, see "Is publishing enabled for your site?" in Before you begin in this article.

Configure inheritance for the top link bar on a non-publishing site

When you create a new site in a site collection for which the publishing features are not enabled, you can choose whether to include the site on the top link bar of the parent site and whether to use the top link bar from the parent site. This provides you with three different configuration options for your site:

  • Inherited and included in parent     The site is included as a tab on the top link bar of the parent site and uses the same top link bar as the parent site. The top link bar cannot be configured at this level without first breaking the inheritance from the parent site.

  • Inherited not included in parent     The site uses the same top link bar as the parent site but is not included as a tab on the top link bar of the parent site. The top link bar cannot be configured at this level without first breaking the inheritance from the parent site.

  • Unique     The site is not included as a tab on the top link bar of the parent site and does not use the same top link bar as the parent site. The top link bar is configurable at this level and is completely separate from the parent site.

If a site is renamed from the Title, Description, and Icon page, the site name is not updated on the top link bar. To change the name that appears on the top link bar, you must edit the top link bar.

When you create a subsite, it appears by default on the top link bar of the parent site and has a unique top link bar. You can change these setting at any time. To configure the top link bar settings for a subsite:

  1. On the Site actions menu Site Actions Menu , click Site settings.

  2. In the Look and Feel column, click Top link bar.
    Look and Feel

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To create custom links for the subsite, click Stop Inheriting Links. The links from the top link bar of the parent site are not retained when you configure the subsite to stop inheriting links.

    • To use the same links as the parent site, click Use Links from Parent. The links on the top link bar of the subsite be deleted when you configure the subsite to use the same top link bar as the parent site.

Configure inheritance for the top link bar on a publishing site

When you create a publishing site, you can choose whether or not to use the top link bar from the parent site. You can change these setting at any time use the Navigation Settings page. To configure the top link bar settings for a subsite:

  1. On the Site Actions menu Site Actions Menu , click Site Settings.

  2. In the Look and Feel column, click Navigation.

    Navigation
    Notes The Navigation command appears under Look and Feel only if the publishing features are enabled for your site and you have at least the permissions obtained by being added to the default Designers SharePoint group for the site.

  3. In the Global Navigation section, do one of the following:

    • To display the same top link bar as the parent site, select Display the same navigation items as the parent site.

    • To display a top link bar that is unique to the current site, select Display the navigation items below the current site.

      Globa Navigation Settings

      Note: These options will not be available if you are at the top level site in your site collection, because a top level site does not have a parent site.

  4. In the Global Navigation section,

    • To display the subsites of the current site on the top link bar, select Show subsites.

    • To display the pages of the current site on the top link bar, select Show pages.

    • To limit the number of links to sites and pages that are automatically displayed on the top link bar, type the number for Maximum number of dynamic items to show within this level of navigation.

  5. Click OK.

The steps you take to add, edit, or remove links from the top link bar differ depending on whether the publishing features are enabled for your site collection. For information about how to determine whether or not the publishing features are enabled for the sites in your site collection, see "Is publishing enabled for your site?" in Before you begin in this article.

Add, edit, or remove links from the top link bar of a non-publishing site

If your site is using a unique top link bar (that is, it is a top-level site or it does not inherit its top link bar from a parent site), you can configure the links that appear on the top link bar for the site. You can also include links to other sites outside of your site collection.

  1. On the Site actions menu Site Actions Menu , click Site settings.

  2. In the Look and Feel column, click Top link bar.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To add a new link, click New Navigation Link. Type the URL and a description for the link. The URL can link to any valid path, such as a folder within this site, a share within your organization’s intranet, or a link to a location on the internet.

      New Navigation Link

    • To edit a link, click the Edit button beside the link that you want to edit Edit and make any necessary changes. You can only edit the description for the default links, such as Home.

    • To remove a link, click the Edit button beside the link Edit , click Delete, and then click OK.

      Important: When you delete a heading from the top link bar on a non-publishing site, any links contained under that heading are also deleted.

    Global Navigation

    Note: If you do not see lists of links organized under the headings Global Navigation or Current Navigation, your site might inherit its Global Navigation from its parent site. In this case, you will be limited to adding or editing links in the Quick Launch unless you want to stop inheriting Global Navigation from the parent site.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • If you want to edit a heading or link, select a heading or link, and then click Edit.

    • If you want to add a new heading, click Add Heading.

    • If you want to add a new link, click Add Link.

      Note: If you select a heading, the link will be added under that heading. If you select a link, the link you create will be added to the same level as the link you selected.

    • If you want to remove a heading or a link, in the Navigation Editing and Sorting section, select the heading or link to remove, and then click Delete.

      Note: When you delete a heading from the top link bar on a publishing site, the links contained under that heading are not deleted and they will display as headings once their original heading is deleted.

  5. In the Web dialog box that appears when you add or edit an item, configure the following:

    • Title  Type the title of the heading or link as you want it to appear. Title is required.

If you are working on a publishing site, you can specify whether you want subsites and pages of your site to be displayed automatically in the top link bar. In the top link bar, subsites and pages of the current site display as new tabs (this assumes the site is not inheriting its navigation from a parent site). If you choose to show subsites and/or pages for all of the sites in your site collection, subsites and pages underneath subsites of the top-level site display as links in drop-down menus from the relevant tabs in the top link bar.

Drop Down Menu

Note: If you decide to display navigation items for subsites or pages, your site may appear cluttered if your site has many subsites or pages. If the structure of your overall site collection is not going to be centrally planned or managed, you might want to configure your site so that subsites and pages do not automatically display.

  1. On the Site actions menu Site Actions Menu , click Site settings.

  2. In the Look and Feel section, click Navigation.

    Note: The Navigation command appears under Look and Feel only if the publishing features are enabled for your site and you have at least the permissions obtained by being added to the default Designers SharePoint group for the site.

    • To hide links to pages in the top link bar, clear the Show pages check box.

    • If you configure your site to show subsites and pages, but your site is set up to display the global navigation (top link bar) for its parent site, you will not see links to these subsites and pages in the navigation for your current site unless the navigation for the parent site is also configured to display subsites and pages.

    • If you are configuring navigation for a top-level site, and you want pages or subsites underneath the subsites of the top-level site to appear on drop-down menus from the top link bar, you need to configure the top level site to show subsites and pages, and you also need to configure the individual subsites to show their subsites and pages.

    • If you do not want all of the subsites or pages to display, you can hide pages and subsites individually after you have configured them to display. For more information, see Show or hide subsites and pages on the top link bar in this article.
