Few notes:

If you don’t have a Home item, you wish to remove Home or simply to rename it, click on View All under the Pages and that’s where the Home item will be located.

Just in case that you need to include dropdown’s, that part is also very simple. All we need here is to drag the the items toward the right and WordPress will automatically treat them as the child page, also know as the dropdown.
