Sometimes developers need to add custom classes to li tag of nav menu. There are multiple ways  to this, but here we are going to show one method out of various once. Firstly, go to the functions.php and the below code there.

function text_domain_custom_nav_classes($classes, $item){
    $classes[] = "custom-css-class";
    return $classes;
}
add_filter('nav_menu_css_class' , 'text_domain_custom_nav_classes' , 10 , 2);

    return $atts;
}
add_filter('nav_menu_link_attributes', 'text_domain_add_menu_link_attributes', 1, 3);
