There are several ways around the inability to right-clicking on web pages. Although I don’t condone copyright theft or copying entire pages, I support the possibility of taking quotes, code, or other snippets of pages for your purposes. It is a great help to save troubleshooting steps from other sources. However, not everyone is as educated as I am.
How to allow right click on blocked websites
You can copy and paste ‘void documentoncontextmenu null’ to a webpage if you are landed on it. Now you should be able to right-click as usual to do what you need. This is a must-have for every copy you make, but it works great on many pages.
This is not a universal method as website owners can use a variety of methods to prevent right-click. Try these other methods if that fails.
Save this page
I found the easiest way to bypass the right-click block was to save the entire page in HTML. Then, I can open the page in the browser and right-click, copy, and paste it. This is especially useful when I have multiple pieces or quotes of code. Although this works in most browsers, Edge users may need to save the page to HTML to ensure it runs properly. But it worked for me, and it may work for you.
Type ‘about’ in a new tab.
Click the three-dot icon at the top of the screen and choose Settings.
Choose Advanced and Content Settings in Privacy and Security.
Use a browser plugin.
Firefox Quantum is my favourite browser. Over a thousand results were returned for the ‘right click’ keyword. While some of the results are not relevant, I found the best plugins that were exactly what I needed. No matter what browser you use, you should see the same plugins.
Go to the source
You may find it easier to see the source code if you will only need to copy something from pages. Although adding “void document oncontextmenu NULL” to the URL bar takes less effort, it is not always convenient to have the code available. So it’s worth remembering Ctrl+U.
Right-click on the page you wish to open and hit Ctrl+ U. The source code will be displayed in a new tab. To search the source code of the text, you can use Ctrl+ F to locate it. The text should now be easy to copy. Ctrl + U or Ctrl + F should work with all modern browsers.
You should not use the ability to right-click and copy text from web pages. Use it sparingly and only when necessary. It takes a lot of effort and time to create content that you will enjoy. Would you please copy responsibly?
