How to add a button with no link in MB

I have an RSD website which I used MB to create the menu. The problem is that the top level buttons require a link, so in mobile if you touch on one of them to open the menu, it automatically redirects to the index page even if you don't put a link in and leave it blank. It is impossible to select an item in the drop menu because you only see the menu briefly before you get redirected.

Here is the website: http://gsexteriorexperts.com. For example, touch on "Windows" in mobile view.

To get around this I just linked to one of the windows pages for now, but of course how do you get to the other pages in the drop down in mobile view? A solution would be to build an interstitial page that has links on it to the other windows pages, but my client does not want that. Apart from being an extra click it also defeats the point of having a drop menu open in mobile if you can't select anything on it in time before it redirects somewhere else.

So the question is how do you disable a top level button that has a drop menu from defaulting to index.html when no link is entered.

MB file is attached.

Many thanks for any help on this.

Hi Bruce,

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Hi Bruce,

You can use what Eric showed you above but if you dont want the page to jump back to the top when pressed you can also enter this into the url for Menu Builder

javascript:void(0)

Hope this helps.
