It is the list of links located to the left side of your SharePoint Site interface.

By default, the menu displays links to lists, libraries, and 5 recent items. To determine which Pages and Sites to have quick access to, you need to modify this menu. To do so, you need to be a Site owner or have the required permissions.

If you don’t have permission to edit a Site navigation, you won’t see the link named “EDIT LINKS”. In this case, contact the Site owner.

  • You can add a new link to the menu by dragging an app from Site Contents or by copy-pasting a url in the field below the name field in the dialogue box.
  • The drag and drop capability also allows you to rearrange the menu links in a desired order.
  • Removing and renaming menu items are simple and intuitive.

The short video above demonstrates how to modify the Quick Launch Menu.
