Solution 1 :

If you want to align absolute/fixed div to right then you just use right: 0;

.icon-bar {
  position: fixed;
  right: 0;
  top: 50%;
  -webkit-transform: translateY(-50%);
  -ms-transform: translateY(-50%);
  transform: translateY(-50%);
}

padding: 0px will mean just.. well.. that this div will not have padding (empty space) on right side inside it, so it has nothing to do with aligning.
Read about padding and positioning because like I said they are completly different things.

Solution 2 :

Just add right: 0; to the .icon-bar

<!DOCTYPE html>

.icon-bar {
  position: fixed;
  top: 50%;
  -webkit-transform: translateY(-50%);
  -ms-transform: translateY(-50%);
  transform: translateY(-50%);
  right:0;
}

.icon-bar a {
  display: block;
  text-align: center;
  padding: 16px;
  transition: all 0.3s ease;

  font-size: 20px;

.icon-bar a:hover {

Problem :

Here’s the CSS:

<style>
body {margin:0;height:2000px;}

.icon-bar {
  position: fixed;
  top: 50%;
  -webkit-transform: translateY(-50%);
  -ms-transform: translateY(-50%);
  transform: translateY(-50%);
}

.icon-bar a {
  display: block;
  text-align: center;
  padding: 16px;
  transition: all 0.3s ease;
  color: white;
  font-size: 20px;
}

.icon-bar a:hover {
  background-color: #000;
}

.facebook {
  background: #3B5998;
  color: white;
}

.twitter {
  background: #55ACEE;
  color: white;
}

.google {
  background: #dd4b39;
  color: white;
}

.linkedin {
  background: #007bb5;
  color: white;
}

.youtube {
  background: #bb0000;
  color: white;
}

.content {
  margin-left: 75px;
  font-size: 30px;
}
</style>

And HTML

<div class="content">
  <h3>Sticky Social Bar</h3>
  <p>The sticky social bar will stick to the screen when you scroll.</p>
</div>

I tried to add padding-right:0px but it didn’t work here:

.icon-bar {
  position: fixed;
  padding-right:0px;
  top: 50%;
  -webkit-transform: translateY(-50%);
  -ms-transform: translateY(-50%);
  transform: translateY(-50%);
}

Not sure where I am going wrong…

Thanks
