Hello folks! welcome back to a new section of our tutorial on Next.js. In this tutorial, we will be discussing about Next.js Global CSS Support.

In this tutorial guide, we are going to create a styles.css which is going to be used on all components using _app.js component.

   line-height: 1.6;
   font-size: 18px;
   background-color: lime;

* {
   box-sizing: border-box;

a {
   color: #0070f3;
   text-decoration: none;

a:hover {
   text-decoration: underline;

img {
   max-width: 100%;
   display: block;

Now create _app.js file in pages directory.

import '../styles/styles.css'

export default function App({ Component, pageProps }) {
   return <Component {...pageProps} />
