How to Create Duplicate Menu in WordPress

We all have idea about inbuilt MENU system in WordPress. We can even create multi-layer menu with this system very easily. It is so much powerful. You can create menu structure with PAGE url or POST url or CUSTOM links or anything you want.

Even though, the “MENUS” option is this much strong in WP, it can not duplicate another menu. When user is in need to create similar menu with few small changes OR he want to create exactly similar menu, he have to start from scratch.

If menu list is of 10-15 links, you feel no efforts to make its copy manually. But imagine, if you have menu structure of minimum 25 links and you have to make changes only in 3-4 menu links, what will you do..? OR you want to make its replica, what will you do..?
