Changing and Creating Navigation Links

Each site in SharePoint provides navigation links on the Top Links bar and Quick Launch bar. The links on the Top Links bar includes Home, page links, and any other subsite names. The Top Links bar inherits navigation from the parent site, if available. The links on the Quick Launch bar includes Home and Site Contents and any site specific ones based on the template, such as Documents. In addition to the navigation links, the Top Links bar and Quick Launch bar also includes an Edit Links button, where you can change, remove, and add links. You can add a link by dragging and dropping an item or using the Add a link button. When you use the Add a link button, you’ll need to know the URL address to the link.
