Overview of Navigator Configuration

ConfigurationToolPane.jpgNavigators lets users create custom menus, tabs, tree items, and a Site Actions menu to navigate to sites, pages, or lists within and across sites and site collections. These navigation controls can help build a clean, user-friendly site that requires customized navigation controls. For example, if you have multiple sub-sites, various projects or links, you can simply go to the specific site by changing tabs instead of opening a separate browser window and entering the URL. Navigators lets you add tabs to the page. By changing the styles or content of the master page, you can quickly customize the appearance of an entire site and use it for other pages.
