The CSS float property is used to set or return the horizontal alignment of elements. But this property allows an element to float only right or left side of the parent body with the rest of the elements wrapped around it. There is no way to float the center in the CSS layout. So, we can center the elements by using position property.

Example 1: This example set the position of elements exactly at the center of the screen. 

html




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <title>
        Make float to center to element
    </title>
     
    <!-- Style to set element float
        to center -->
    <style>
        .Center {
            width:200px;
            height:200px;
            position: fixed;
            background-color: blue;
            top: 50%;
            left: 50%;
            margin-top: -100px;
            margin-left: -100px;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <div class="Center"></div>
</body>
 
</html>


Output:  Example: This example set the position of text float elements exactly at the center of the screen. 

html




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
     
    <!-- Style to set text-element
        to center -->
    <style>
        .center {
            text-align-last: center;
            border: 2px solid black;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <h2 style = "text-align:center">
        Text is centered:
    </h2>
     
    <div class="center">
        <p>
            <font color="green">

                Science Portal for Geeks
            </font>
        </p>
    </div>
</body>
 
</html>
