1.Global navigation will not display in your attached screenshot in the team site. You should go to Site settings -> Navigation -> Global navigation to set up global navigation.
2.I suggest you create a new term set then apply the new term set to a new site collection, check if it works. Here're steps:
(1)Go to SharePoint admin center -> More features -> Term store -> Set your account as Term Store Administrators ->Save the change.

(2)Select the Term store service application -> Right click -> New Group -> Set your account as Group Managers -> Save the change.

(3)Select the group -> Right click -> New Term Set -> Select the new term set -> Intended use -> Click "Available for Tagging", "Use this Term Set for Site Navigation" and "Use this Term Set for Faceted Navigation" -> Save the change.

(4)Select the new term set -> Create Term -> Select the new term -> Navigation -> Enter the URL for the term -> Save the change.

Hi Emily Du,

I followed your latest instructions as it is, looks like it is working, however page not found is popping up when I click on term1 from ribbon.
What is expected outcome here? is it page not found? why even though I followed correctly every time it is showing page not found? am I doing some thing wrong fundamentally?

Whether you provide the link for the term as following picture shows?
134654-image.png

You could provide the term with "https://www.google.com" URL to test. After setting, please provide the screenshot for me.

You put the mouse hover over the "Term1" term, you will see the URL displays in the bottom left of the page. If it shows 404 error again, please provide the screenshot with URL displays in the bottom left of the page for me.

Based on your description, I understand that you want to set up global navigation in the Term Store Management Tool. Here're steps:

  1. Go to SharePoint admin center -> More features -> Term store -> Set Term Store Administrators.

  2. Select the Term store service application -> Right click -> New Group -> Set Group Managers.

  3. Select the group -> Right click -> New Term Set -> Select the new term set -> Intended use -> Click "Available for Tagging", "Use this Term Set for Site Navigation" and "Use this Term Set for Faceted Navigation".
    133494-3.png

  4. Select the new term set -> Create Term -> Select the new term -> Navigation -> Provide link for the term.
    133505-4.png

  5. Go to site collection -> Site settings -> Navigation -> Set Global Navigation as Managed Navigation -> Select term store in the Managed Navigation: Term Set section.

Per my knowledge, except for term store , JS and CSS files, you could edit it in the UI.

You should first set your account as term store administrator, save the change, refresh the page, then create a new group.

Hi Emily Du,

Thank you for the continuous support.
After adding term store admin, it is giving an option to create Group and I created Group with Name "Global Navigation" and then Term set with Name "1" and child as "a" , you can see in the attached screenshot.

However I am not seeing it is reflecting in the Global Navigation part from site settings like yours. Please help .

1.You should set URL for the term. Go to SharePoint admin center -> More features -> Term store -> Select the term ("a" in your SharePoint) -> Navigation -> Provide link for the term. After that, when you click the term, it will direct to the link you set before.

2.Go to one site collection -> Site settings -> Term store management under Site Administration -> Then you could manage site collection term set.

You could enter URL you want manually, not necessarily through "Browser". The URL can be whatever you want.
