Root Level Categories are the categories seen on your site’s homepage. Root Level Categories can be managed in the Category Manager; and they can be found aligned furthest to the left with a blue “+” button below them. On the far right side of the category title (in the example below the Root Level Category title is “Service”), you can view the number of how many subcategories this root level has.
