You can use product categories to better sort the content of your Store and improve the user experience, as searching for specific products by the customers will become much easier. Magento 2 comes with a default root category but you can create your own and name it as you like. To do that, you will first need to login to the admin dashboard of your Magento 2 and navigate to Products → Categories.
We have already created a root category for Men's Clothes so let us create one for Women as well:
When you are ready, click on the Save Category button to apply the changes and create the category. To create a subcategory for the new root category, simply select the root category and click on the Add Subcategory button. To learn how to add products to this new category, visit our How to Add a New Product tutorial.
