Step 1

Please open an existing page locally in your web page editor (e.g. Dreamweaver) or create a new page and save it to a new created folder (named "menu" for example) in your computer.

Step 3

Click Folder button to choose a directory to save the generated js file for the html dropdown menu. Here we set the path as “E:\tutorial\menu\topmenu.js”. But make sure you set the path of the js file inside the site root folder, or you have to modify the js file path manually.
