When I am in the new SharePoint view, the top link bar is appearing twice. When it is in the old classic view, it shows up once.

I checked /_layouts/15/AreaNavigationSettings.aspx and everything appears to look fine there. I am guessing it inherited the old SharePoint information during migration.

Is there a way for me to access that and remove it in SharePoint or using SharePoint Designer?

Thank you for any help!

  • Check this for more information on hub sites and if it is a hub site then you can Unregister a site as a hub site. Let me know if it works for you. Commented Jan 7, 2021 at 19:09

Check if you have register this site as a Hub site.

You can find more information about hub sites at: Planning your SharePoint hub sites

If it is a hub site then you can unregister it by following below documentation:

Unregister a site as a hub site

  • Hi Ganesh, it looks like it is a hub site. Is there a way for me to keep it as a hubsite, but access the data and edit the "top link bar". The hubsite is migrated from SP2013 the site templates are very old.

  • Are you able to see the "Edit" option after last link in hub navigation? Something like given here under "Add a link to the hub site navigation bar" section. Commented Jan 8, 2021 at 15:10

As Ganesh Sanap said, you could unregister that site as hub site.

Here is the way to using PnP PowerShell command as a supplement.

Open SharePoint Online Management Shell and type following PnP PowerShell:

Connect-PnPOnline -Url https://tenant.sharepoint.com -Credentials (Get-Credential)
Unregister-PnPHubSite -Site https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/myhubsite

Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/sharepoint-pnp/unregister-pnphubsite?view=sharepoint-ps

More information, you could refer to those documents provided by Ganesh Sanap.
