I am observing some strange behavior with the Modern Teams Site. I want to shift the Navigation to Horizontal from verticle on the team site.

We can do this change from Change the look pane but surprisingly I don't see the Navigation option there.

enter image description here

However, on my dev tenant and on another tenant, I can see the option. I checked the web template and for all the sites it is the same "Group".

Can anyone help me here understand this behavior?

Update on Site Creation:

The site was created using Teams using the normal creation options. The Teams was linked to an existing O365 group which was created first to enable Outlook Groups and calendars as well. Nothing special, no tools or anything else.

  • Is this site created from SP UI or migrated using any tool? or converted classic team site to modern group site? Jun 17, 2022 at 6:10
  • Whether this issue occurs to all site collections? Jun 17, 2022 at 9:14
  • @EmilyDu-MSFT We are observing inconsistent behavior. Jun 17, 2022 at 11:43
  • @GaneshSanap don't have that information yet Jun 17, 2022 at 11:43
  • Any update for the issue? Jun 22, 2022 at 8:20

If the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure is enabled then the Site Navigation option is not available.

Disabled the above feature and then I can see the Navigation option under Change the look pane.
