To manage navigation for a SharePoint site, you must have the Full Control or Design permission level for the site. You have one of these permission levels if you can access the Sites Settings page for the site and 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).

  1. To go to the Site Navigation Settings page, do one of the following:

    • On the Site Actions menu, click Site Settings.
    • On the Site Actions menu, point to Site Settings, and then Click Modify All Site Settings.
  2. In the Look and Feel column, click Navigation.

Note: - The Navigation command appears under Look and Feel only if the publishing features are enabled for your site and you have the Full Control or Design permission level.
