How do I reduce the size of the navigation bar produced by creating a Visual Studio MVC project

Last Modified: 2018-12-14
When you create a MVC project in Visual Studio 2015, a default _Layout.cshtml page is created. The markup includes the following DIV (I changed the div a bit):
    <div class= "navbar navbar-collapse collapse navbar-fixed-top">
        <ul class="nav navbar-nav">
            <li>@Html.ActionLink("Home", "Index", "Home")</li>
            <li>@Html.ActionLink("Users", "Users", "Home")</li>
            <li>@Html.ActionLink("General", "General", "Home")</li>
            <li>@Html.ActionLink("Customer Portal", "CustomerPortal", "Home")</li>

Open in new window

I want to reduce the height of the div and all its elements to about 25 px,, and move the rest of the body content up to fill in the space created.
