Why Do Websites Disable Right-Click?

The internet is free for everyone to use and consume. But some content is subjected to copyright or sensitive, so publishers and administrators of the website would want to prevent people from stealing and sharing it for commercial use. This is why websites completely disable right-click context menu.


They can file a copyright claim on the content with Google, but it can take a while to resolve, and it still leaves open the content being sold offline or through closed chat rooms. This is understandable, but the issue is that instead of providing a limited set of features of their own upon right-clicking, they outright ban its use, which blocks some accessibility features.

How to Enable Right Click on Websites Where it is Disabled

Websites use custom javascript to block the right-click context menu. There are some workarounds to disable it and other ways to access the content you might be looking for. We will share with you five ways that you can use to enable right-click on websites where it is disabled.

We do request you to use these methods for personal use only.

1. Enable Right Click with Javascript code

As we discussed that most websites use javascript to disable right-click. You can use a small line of code to allow the right-click context menu. Let us take a look at it:

Step 1: Browse to the website or page where right-click is disabled.

Step 2: Copy this line of code javascript:void(document.oncontextmenu=null); and paste it on the address bar, and press Enter.

Using this code, you can use the right-click context menu. But do note that you will have to copy and paste it every time you want to right-click.

2. Entirely Disable Javascript in Web browsers

Another workaround to enable right-click on a website is disabling Javascript on your browser. This will prevent the custom script from running, allowing you to use right-click context menu. However, Javascript is required by several sites, and disabling it might break or prevent the websites from loading correctly, so remember to enable it back again.

Disable Javascript on Chrome

Step 1: Open Chrome and go to Settings.

Step 2: Select the Privacy and Security option from the left sidebar.
