Next to the Drupal default menus, Sector ships with additional preconfigured menus and menu blocks to make it as easy as possible to get started.

A menu is a hierarchical list of menu items used to navigate a website. The Basic Page Management section in the Drupal User Guide explains the concept and main use cases for both sitebuilders and editorial teams.
