Fullscreen Menu On Hover Change background Image with automatic switching, written in jQuery and CSS/CSS3, enhances the user experience by smoothly transitioning the background image as the cursor hovers over each menu item. This creates a dynamic and engaging effect. By combining these HTML, CSS, and jQuery , you can create a captivating full screen menu that dynamically changes the background image when hovering over the menu items.

When implemented, it creates a full screen menu with menu items that respond to cursor hover by smoothly transitioning the background image. The “background-size” property ensures that the image covers the entire background.

How To Use Fullscreen Menu

Add a Fullscreen Menu list and background images to the page.

<!-- Wrapper -->
<div class="wrapp">
  <!-- BG Images -->
  <div class="menu-img">
    <img id="1-bg__img" src="1.jpg" alt="1">
    <img id="2-bg__img" src="2.jpg" alt="2">
    <img id="3-bg__img" src="3.jpg" alt="3">
  <!-- <a href="https://www.jquerypost.com/category/menu-nav/">Menu</a> Items -->
  <ul class="menu">
    <li class="menu__item" data-id="1">
      <a href="#" class="menu__link">jQuery</a>
    <li class="menu__item" data-id="2">
