The dequeue() method is an inbuilt method in jQuery that is used to remove the next function from the queue and then it will execute the function. In a queue there will be several functions waiting to run dequeue() used to remove the top function from the queue and execute that function. 

Syntax:

$(selector).dequeue(name);

Parameter: It accepts a parameter “name” which specifies the name of the queue. 

Return Value: It returns the selected element that performs the given top function.
