I have a modern SharePoint site where all the navigation items are repeated what looks like hundred of times in the out of the box quick launch on the left hand side. I can't edit nor can I rearrange these items. I don't know how to fix this, can someone point me in the right direction?

Hi, please can you share a screenshot of this problem?  Thank you.

Hi Peter, not really sure a screenshot buys anything here, but here it is. This is the bottom of the left hand navigation, and it scrolls up forever.

When I try to edit it and remove the entries, nothing changes when I hit save.

That is odd.  OK, try going into Site Contents > Site Settings > Navigation Elements.  This should take you to the settings below;

Untick Enable Quick Launch, and click OK.  Then go back to your page and the Quick Launch will have disappeared.  Then try re-ticking it, and see if that corrects the issue?

Already tried it. I'm thinking of just creating a new site and moving everything over, but I certainly don't want to move the problem as well. I was really hoping there was a way to reset it.

Hmm, certainly not aware of any other way to reset it.  Maybe log a ticket with Microsoft and see if they can advise any further?

@jscroggin have you tried a different browser?   I've seen it before, worked.   Nuked machine and all was fine, just try an alternate to ensure it's not something dumb.
