I have parent/child links hierarchy inside my Quick Launch links, but is there a way to be able to hide/show the child links, instead of always showing the child links?

::EDIT:: I have modified my master page as follow :-

<SharePoint:AspMenu id="V4QuickLaunchMenu" runat="server" EnableViewState="false" DataSourceId="QuickLaunchSiteMap" UseSimpleRendering="true" Orientation="Vertical" StaticDisplayLevels="1" AdjustForShowStartingNode="true" MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="1" SkipLinkText="" />

and currently i will have a menu for displaying the child links, but the look&feel for the menu is not that much impressive , and the child links will be shown as if they are on a seperate box as follow:- enter image description here

so is there a way to improve the look and feel for the menu ? Regards

You can edit the Quick Launch Navigation control and set Static Display Level, Dynamic Display Level properties

PS: It was this way in SP 2010, I hope its the same in 2013
