  • You can customize the master page in SharePoint Online.

    When you open the site in the designer, you can either see it in the left-hand column or via all files/_cts/catalogs/ path.

    Generally, master page related settings appear when you have activated the publishing feature on the site collection level.

  • Hi,

    Any update?

    Please check whether you can access the following URL in browser or not.

    Or please check your permission and try to use site admin to open your site using SharePoint designer 2013.

    Best Regards,
