Similar to .addClass(), the jQuery .removeClass() method can remove a class from selected elements.

Its syntax is similar to .addClass():


In the example above:

  • .removeClass() is called on .example-class elements.
  • The method removes the 'active' class from all .example-class elements.



Currently, the navigation menu is assigned a class called hide that sets its display to none.

Use the .removeClass() method to show the navigation menu when a user’s mouse enters the menu button’s area.
