I would like to toggle Global Navigation on, but I do not see the option on my intranet home site.

I am the Site Owner. I also checked with the Global Admin and he also cannot see the option, so I assume it is a bug. Has anyone else had this experience?

Screen shot of intranet home page, no Global Setting option visible

Here is a relevant Microsoft link on the topic of toggling on Global Navigation (left of the screen).

I am able to customize the top bar navigation, but it is the navigation on the left I am focusing on.

You need to set up a home site in SharePoint Online to enable and customize the global navigation in SharePoint app bar.

Once you set up a home site, you can see the global navigation settings on home site like:

    Hi Ganesh, running the powershell script worked, thank you for your helpful answer. It was a curious case, as my home site is the OOTB home site that is provisioned when the SPO tenancy is set up.
