I have implemented scroll to top in jquery with a long page and a red button is hidden on the top.  When you scroll down the page, a red button will appear at the right-bottom position. After that, you can click that button to scroll to the top of the page.

  right: 12%;

  • First Include jQuery CDN to execute the custom jquery code.
  • Access the HTML button with its id and assign it to a variable scrollTopButton
  • Write a script to display or hide the red button at the bottom-right position. when you scroll down more than 100px 100px then the opacity value 1  otherwise 0 will be added to the red button.
  • Write a script on click event and use the animate() method with value scrollTop:0 & time period 500 for smooth scrolling up to 5 seconds.
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

  var scrollTopButton = $("#scrollTopButton");

  $(window).on('scroll',function() {
    if ($(this).scrollTop() > 100) {
      $(scrollTopButton).css("opacity", "1");

    } else {
      $(scrollTopButton).css("opacity", "0");


  //Click event to scroll to top
  $(scrollTopButton).on('click', function() {
