How do I change the size of my hamburger menu made in html and css only. I can change the width but not the height.

.main-header ul { margin-top: 3.5em; padding: 0; width: 100%; list-style: none; overflow: hidden; background: #151313; position: absolute; right: 0; text-align: center; font-size: 2.5em; font-family: }

.main-header li a { display: block; padding: 20px 20px; text-decoration: none; border-top: 1px solid #f3f3f2; }

.main-header li a:hover, .main-header .menu-btn:hover { color: #6cc5ae; }

/menu/ .main-header .menu { clear: both; max-height: 0; transition: max-height .2s ease-out; }

/menu icon/ .main-header .menu-icon { cursor: pointer; display: inline-block; flex: end; padding: 28px 20px; position: absolute; right: 12%; top: 30%; user-select: none; }

.main-header .menu-icon .navicon { background: #f3f3f2; display: block; height: 3px; position: relative; transition: background .2s ease-out; width: 3em;

}

.main-header .menu-icon .navicon:before, .main-header .menu-icon .navicon:after { background: #f3f3f2; content: ''; display: block; height: 100%; position: absolute; transition: all .2s ease-out; width: 100%; }

.main-header .menu-icon .navicon:before { top: 5px; font-size: 30px; }

.main-header .menu-icon .navicon:after { top: -5px; }

/menu btn/ .main-header .menu-btn { display: none; }

.main-header .menu-btn:checked ~ .menu { max-height: 550px;

}

.main-header .menu-btn:checked ~ .menu-icon .navicon { background: transparent; }

.main-header .menu-btn:checked ~ .menu-icon .navicon:before { transform: rotate(-45deg); } .main-header .menu-btn:checked ~ .menu-icon .navicon:after { transform: rotate(45deg); }

.main-header .menu-btn:checked ~ .menu-icon:not(.steps) .navicon:before, .main-header .menu-btn:checked ~ .menu-icon:not(.steps) .navicon:after { top: 0; }

The HTML component seems to be missing. Also, when posting code, use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:   Or watch this video on code formatting.

Thanks for that, I haven't posted much on here, hopefully this helps. This is my first site building from 'mobile first'. Thanks again for taking the time for this. hopefully when I get better at it I can contribute a little more too.

         <nav>
            <input class="menu-btn" type="checkbox" id="menu-btn" />
            <label class="menu-icon" for="menu-btn"><span class="navicon"></span></label>

I just figured it out as I was reading over the code on my answer. this is the change I made. Thanks again for your help!

.main-header .menu-icon .navicon:before {
    top: 15px;
    font-size: 30px;
}

.main-header .menu-icon .navicon:after {
    top: -15px;
}
