To create a sub-menu, you create it as a normal menu item first as the steps shown above. Then, you drag and drop it into the desired menu item box. It will automatically become a sub-menu. You can rearrange the order of the sub-menus within a menu item by drag and drop it below or above other menus. To turn a sub-menu into a menu item, just drag and drop it out of the menu item box. 

Note : For Microsoft Surface users, you may face difficulty in dragging and dropping the menus with the mouse in your Chrome browser. If you use the touchscreen to do the drag and drop, it will work just fine. You may also opt to use the Mozilla Firefox browser instead to avoid this issue.
