Now i am going to explain step by step.

Step 1:Create a Folder: Just  create a folder with any name and in any drive in your system, In my case my folder name is SidebarNavigation.

Step 2:Create an HTML file: Now open notepad and type the below code or you can copy this code for your personal use

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
    background-image: url('background.jpg');
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    height: 100%;
    width: 0;
    position: fixed;
    z-index: 1;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    background-color: black;
    overflow-x: hidden;
    transition: 1s;
    padding-top: 60px;
    padding: 0px 5px;
    color: #1263ce;
  .sidenav a{
    padding: 8px 8px 8px 32px;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-size: 19px;
    color: #818181;
    display: block;
    transition: 0.4s;
  .sidenav a:hover{
    color: #f1f1f1;
    background-color: rgb(23,64,199);
  .sidenav a:hover i{
    color: white;
    transition: 1s;
  .sidenav .closebtn{
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    right: 25px;
    font-size: 35px;
    margin-left: 50px;
  .sidenav .closebtn:hover{
    background-color: black;
  @media screen and (max-width: 460px){
    .sidenav{padding-top: 15px;}
    .sidenav a{font-size: 18px;}
  <div class="sidenav" id=mySidenav>
    <a class="closebtn" href="javascript:void(0)" onclick="closeNav()">
    <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-home"></i>Home</a>
    <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-cog"></i>Service</a>
    <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-user"></i>Registration</a>
    <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-lock"></i>Login</a>
    <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-user"></i>About</a>
    <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-address-book"></i>Contact</a>
    <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-image"></i>Gallery</a>

  <span style="font-size: 30px;cursor: pointer;color: white;margin-top: 20px;" id="name" onclick="openNav()">
     function openNav()
     function  closeNav()

Now save this file with name SideBar.html inside the created folder [SidebarNavigation]. Note:Don't forget to type .html after the file name because .html is the extension for HTML file.

Step 3:Download and store images: I have used an image for background. If you want to use the same image then  click here to download image. After downloading the image store it into the created folder SidebarNavigation.

After doing these your created folder will look like below.
