In your Elementor editor, click the hamburger icon () in the corner, go to Site Settings, click on the Header option, but first, let’s create a menu for our site.

Creating a Menu in WordPress

Inside your WordPress dashboard go to Appearance > Menus, give your menu a name under Menu Name, check the Header and Footer options then Create Menu

Next, go to the Add Menu Items option, under Custom Links add a hashtag (#) on the URL option then under Link Text add About, then click Add to Menu.

Add # Services and # Contact items (03:33)

Up on the Pages option, add the sample page to the menu and rename it Home (03:44)

Drag the Home item to the top of the other menu items, then Save Menu.

Back to your Elementor editor, you’ll find a hamburger icon on the right for the menu (03:57)

On your dashboard go to Appearance > Customize > Site Identity (04:30), change the Site Title to Go Digital, Tagline to Webdesign Agency, then upload a Site Icon of your choice (that’s the little icon that appears on the website title in the browser). When you’re done, click the Publish button.
