  3. If user go to top then hide the button
  4. Scroll to top with Animate method

#back-top is the scroll top button. #top is added to the body tag for no JavaScript fallback.

  <title>Scroll to top</title>
<body id="top">
  <div class="wrap"> <!--main div-->
  <!-- contents here -->
  <div id="back-top"><!-- scroll top button -->
    <a href="#top"><span></span>Back to Top</a>

CSS Part
#back-top position is fixed 30px bottom and 100px right, top.png as background and transition is 1 second.
Back to top button 
#back-top {
  position: fixed;
  bottom: 30px;
  right: 100px;
#back-top a {
  width: 64px;
  display: block;
  text-align: center;
  font: 11px/100% Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  text-decoration: none;
  color: #bbb;
  /* background color transition */
  -webkit-transition: 1s;
  -moz-transition: 1s;
  transition: 1s;
#back-top a:hover {
  color: #000;
/* arrow icon (span tag) */
#back-top span {
  width: 64px;
  height: 64px;
  display: block;
  margin-bottom: 7px;
  background: #ddd url(top.png) no-repeat center center;

  background-color: #fff;
  font-weight: bold;
  font-size: 22px;
  border: 2px solid #333;
  border-radius: 29px;
jQuery Part
$(function() {
  // cache scroll to top button
  var b = $('#back-top');
  // Hide scroll top button
  // FadeIn or FadeOut scroll to top button on scroll
  $(window).on('scroll', function(){
    // if you scroll more then 400px then fadein goto top button
    if ($(this).scrollTop() > 400) {
    // otherwise fadeout button
    } else {
  // Animated scroll to top
  b.on('click', function(){
      scrollTop: 0
    }, 500 );
    return false;


  1. Great and helpful tutorial. I am using this , This is also simple
    $(document).ready(function(e) {
    var a = 400,
    t = 1200,
    l = 700,
    s = e(".scrool-top");
    e(window).scroll(function() {
    e(this).scrollTop() > a ? s.addClass("scrool-is-visible") : s.removeClass("scrool-is-visible scrool-fade-out"), e(this).scrollTop() > t && s.addClass("scrool-fade-out")
    }), s.on("click", function(a) {
    a.preventDefault(), e("body,html").animate({
    scrollTop: 0
    }, l)
