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.

  • 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.
