Responsive Top Navigation Menu Using HTML & CSS

The navigation menu bar enhances the quality and beauty of the website by arranging all the content of each website in a beautiful way.

Hello friends, in this blog article I am going to show you how to create a menu bar on Responsive using only simple HTML and CSS programming code. I have designed many more types of menubars before, such as site menubars, overlay menubars, and so on. The navigation menu I created in this article is very simple and generally designed. HTML is used to build it and CSS code is used to design it. 

The menubar is a significant UI design of the website. With the help of which you can organize all kinds of content of the website beautifully. Each menu has a hover effect, meaning that when you hover or click on the menus, the color of the background will change. I have seen below how you can change this color as you wish. In the menubar on this navigator, I added some menus and used a logo. I also used social media icons. It is made fully responsive which means it can adapt itself beautifully to any device. Blue color has been used in the background.
