Scroll To Top or Back To Top Button using HTML & CSSHello readers, Today in this blog you’ll learn how to create a Scroll To Top or Back To Top Button using only HTML and CSS. Previously I have shared a Minimal To-Do List program that is based on HTML CSS & jQuery, now it’s time to create a Scroll Top Button using only HTML and CSS.

 
Nowadays every blogs and website have a separate button for going back to the top of the webpage. When we read or watch content on the website then we start scrolling down to see more content, but many times we want to go back on the upper side. For going back to the top of the webpage we have to scroll up, but most websites use a button to go back to the top with a single click.
 
You may saw on the many websites, there is a Scroll Top or Back To Top Button feature which is created using HTML CSS & Javascript. That is a pretty good feature and saves some seconds for your visitors or users.
 
If you’re feeling difficulty understanding what I am saying. You can watch a full video tutorial on this program (Scroll To Top or Back To Top Button).

Scroll To Top Button or Back To Top Button [Source Codes]

As always, before sharing the codes of this program (Scroll To Top or Back To Top Button). Let’s a few talks about the main tags and codes of this program. As you saw in the video, first I created a <nav> tag for the navbar of the webpage. Then inside the <nav> tag I created a <div> tag with the class name “logo” for logo. After that, I created another <div> tag with the class name “content” and placed all other tags inside it.

Similarly, inside the <div> name “content” tag I created some <h1>, <h2>, <p>, <ul>, and <li> tags for insert or show dummy text. In the CSS file, first I gave document to margin:0; and padding:0; using *(universal selector) which browser takes by default. Then I did some style to the navbar, texts etc.

In the HTML file, again I created a <div> tag with the class name “arrow-btn” and placed <a> tag and <span> tag inside it. Inside <span> tag I used a font-awesome class name for show arrow icon. In the CSS file, I did some style that icon to create a Scroll Top Button. At last, I took an HTML selector, and inside it, I put scroll-behaviour: smooth; value for show smooth effect on the button click.


To create this program (Scroll To Top or Back To Top Button). First, you need to create two Files one HTML File and another one is CSS File. After creating these files just paste the following codes in your file. First, create an HTML file with the name of index.html and paste the given codes in your HTML file.
