Learn to edit the website header of your Shopify store

The header is a content block at the upper part of your website that appears on every page. It usually contains the logo of a store, the main navigation menu, and other elements such as a search bar, shopping cart icon, etc.

The header plays a vital role in branding your site, helping visitors navigate, and displaying your most important pages.

You can freely customize your header to suit your business needs by adding your logo image, choosing the main menu, and other addons using Minimog theme.
