How to figure out the scroll percentage of an element on a page

    Hi.

    Do you know of some tool where I can check at what percentage of the vertical scroll a certain web element is located?

    For example, I have a page where I have a button somewhere near the bottom. How can I find at what % of the page scroll exactly is this button located?

    Ideally, I would prefer if there is an online tool or software that can tell as I scroll a page how much percent of it I have gone.

    I am not much into coding so I wouldn't like to install any code on the site. Unless it is really something very simple like copy/paste.

    Thank you!

    The question itself is nonsensical -- at least if you have a good layout. Since layouts should be elastic, semi-fluid, AND responsive, the word-wrap difference as screen width changes would make the "percentage" of scroll change wildly. Screen height alone would skew that number. You're not going to get the same "percentage" of "screen height" on a 480px tall cheap phone as you are at 2560p.

    Between all the varying widths, heights, wrapping behaviors -- and if done properly semi-fluid elastic layout -- any value you extract is not going to apply evenly to everyone.

    If it's THAT important? Put it at the top!
