For Drupal beginners, when you explore the footer menu on the newly set up site, you will be surprised to find out it’s not shown on the page. Most likely, your drupal site is with the default Olivero theme, which has been included in Drupal Core since Drupal 9. Olivero theme is the Drupal Community’s latest effort to provide a modern theme out of the box, especially for people who use drupal for the first time.
