I am using SP 2016, When I add any subsite it gets added to the top nav and its pages gets added underneath the site. eg.

Subsite 1
- Page-1
- Page-2
- Page-3
- Page-4

When I go to Top Navigation, click Edit links options and try to remove some links from the dropdown using X sign, nothing happens. I am able to do drag and drop but for some reason not able to remove and rename the links in top navigation.

However, I am able to do it for the left navigation.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

  • I think you need to check the Site Settings > Navigation - here there are more details navigation settings. Personally I never use the Edit Links options.

You can edit/remove top navigation items via Site Settings > Navigation, then under Structural Navigation: Editing and Sorting, you'll see your links in a list (top nav items are under Global Navigation)
