The contents of header widgets appear at the very top of the page, above the logo/heading. You can choose to place navigation menu(s), social media links, or a search widget here.
These three widgets form this area:
- Header - Left
- Header - Center

Header - Left
Inside the left header, you might want to insert a few handy links, for example a Contact Us button.
- In order to set up a custom menu for this area, you can go to Appearance > Menus and click Create New Menu (for example "Top Left") at the top. For more information on how to create menus, please read https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Menu_User_Guide.

Appearance > Widgets then drag and drop a
Navigation Menu widget into the widget area named
