For PC & Mac users, the various menu trees (in white text above) appear when a mouse hovers over them. From each main topical menu trunk, several sub-topical menu branches will drop down and many sub-topics are also menu trunks for additional sub-topics, etc.
For smartphone and tablet users, a single Menu appears from an icon in the upper left corner of the screen. All sub-topics are displayed after the Menu selection.
