How To Hide Scrollbars Without Affecting Functionality

Hi Developers,

Lets see How To Hide Scrollbars Without Affecting Functionality. Basically when we hide any overflow using the overflow:hidden the scroll bars will be invisible but the functionality of the scroll bar also lost hence the website will be non scrollable which make users a very bad impression of the website to over come this we need to hide the scroll bar and also keep the functionality to make the website scrollable even without the scrollbar . so lets see How To Hide Scrollbars Without Affecting Functionality.

Customize CSS using "overflow: hidden;" for a sleek design. Maintain functionality by utilizing alternative methods like JavaScript for scrolling.

To hide scrollbar and also the scroll functionality

Let's Start Coding

Basically the scrollbars are produced in the browsers by default we should override the feature by using the css. Therefore its highly depends on the type of the browser .
for browsers like Chrome, Safari and Opera only supports non-standard format of ::-webkit-scrollbar pseudo element that will allows you to modify the scrollbar of the website.
for browsers like IE and Edge we should use -ms-overflow-style:
for browsers like Firefox only supports scrollbar-width

like above the code varies depends on the browser we are using,

/* Hide scrollbar for Chrome, Safari and Opera */
.example::-webkit-scrollbar {
  display: none;

/* Hide scrollbar for IE, Edge and Firefox */
.example {
  -ms-overflow-style: none;  /* IE and Edge */
  scrollbar-width: none;  /* Firefox */
