Javascript – Scroll to the top of the page using JavaScript

javascriptscroll

How do I scroll to the top of the page using JavaScript? The scrollbar instantly jumping to the top of the page is desirable too as I'm not looking to achieve smooth scrolling.

Best Solution

If you don't need the change to animate then you don't need to use any special plugins - I'd just use the native JavaScript window.scrollTo() method -- passing in 0, 0 will scroll the page to the top left instantly.

window.scrollTo(xCoord, yCoord);

Parameters

  • xCoord is the pixel along the horizontal axis.
  • yCoord is the pixel along the vertical axis.
