Enable Right-Click on Websites That Disable it
The methods described in this article will help you re-enable the full right-click context menu on all websites. It will allow you to not only copy text but also image and video URLs. These methods work on pretty much all major desktop platforms, including Windows, macOS, and Linux. Most of them work on all major browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. So without further ado, let’s check out 4 ways to enable right-click menu on websites that disable it.
Method 1: Using Browser Extensions or Add-ons
The easiest way to enable right-click menu on any website is by using an extension or add-on. Various extensions serve the purpose, but the one I have used for the better part of the last decade is Absolute Enable Right Click and Copy.

You can also use the ‘Absolute Mode’ to force-remove all types of right-click restrictions.

Method 4: Using Web Proxy
You can also use a proxy service to enable right-click context menus on websites. That’s because most proxy sites offer the option to switch off scripts that can identify the user. You can use services like HideMe, which include this feature. Just remember to check-mark the ‘Remove Scripts’ option before you navigate to the target website. Do note that using this option might break some website functionality.
Easily Enable Right Click on All Websites
Using the methods described above, you can easily enable right-click on websites that have it disabled. Of course, you should not use them to recycle or steal content from publishers, but you may access resources for personal use. Using an extension/add-on is probably the easiest way for most users, but it is always cool to have more options. So go ahead, give these methods a try when you encounter a site with a disabled right-click context menu.
