Hi @Darren5FA2,

Use Ctrl + Shift + F11 to switch the Document Toolbar from Live to Design view (see screenshot). It may not look pretty but it should be editable.  If not, chances are you're working with a Template driven child page in which case you must open the Template.dwt file to edit the menu.

Hope that helps.

Sorry to ask again. But, where can I find template.dwt? Because I am a very newbie. The square gray appears after I saved the project or the HTML.

You are not working with Templates, hence you will not find template.dwt.

 

Have you tried selecting the proper element in the DOM panel or in the Staus bar?

Yes, and I follow this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7WBbGMBZlU&t=341s and I can't edit the HTML. If I save my work it will be gray square, not blue or yellow square.

By @Darren5FA2

 

are you still looking for the template.dwt ?

if so, check on the file panel (F8 or Windows > File Panel), then from there you should see (in the local files) a Template folder which contains all the .dwt.

CAUTION: This folder musn't be rename nor nested anywhere else... its name is Template and its location is at root folder
