  • hi

    you can create a custom master page and in the sub site settings->Site Master Page Settings to apply it.

  • Hi maria1368,

    If you haven’t activated “SharePoint Server Publishing” site feature, as Justin suggested, open the subsite and navigate to Site settings > Master pages, edit the master page. The change in the master page will only affect this subsite.

    If you have activated “SharePoint Server Publishing” site feature for the subsite, you need to go to Site settings > Look and Feel > Master page > Specify a master page for this site and all sites that inherit from it.

    Best regards,
