right click disabled on websites, can not copy text, can not save imagesMany websites have blocked texts and images on their sites. Blocking text and images on a site means they are not allowing people to either copy any portion of text from their web pages or save any images from their website. Basically sites do not want their contents getting published elsewhere. And most matrimonial websites do not allow image saving options by disabling right click, just to respect their member’s privacy. But this is possible to bypass all their settings and copy text as well as save images from those restricted websites. Read further to know how.

In general we select some portion of text from a website, then right click on it and save that. In order to save images from a website, we right click on the image, select the image saving option and save the image. But now-a-days sites are using some simple javascripts to block right clicking ability on their web pages. And as a result, we can’t save any text or images from their sites. Now if we can block those scripts temporarily, the website will behave like a normal site and we can do whatever we want. Lets learn how to bypass their settings.

How to enable Right Click on web sites : Websites use javascripts to block the right clicks on their websites. This javascript acts with our browser. So, if we can set our browsers to avoid running those scripts, we will be able to copy texts and save images. Now lets learn how to disable javascripts and enable right click.

Firefox users :

  • Go to Tools –> Options
  • Click on Content tab
  • Uncheck the box saying Enable javascript
  • Restart Firefox and you are done.

Internet Explorer Users :

  • Click on Security Tab –> Custom Level
  • Scroll to Scripting

    • Hi Gugha, were you able to solve this? I am encountering the same problem.
      I would really appreciate if you could share the solution, thanks

    • You’ve to load your pictures in individual pop-up windows, THEN disable Java. Drag and drop into wherever you want each picture to go, then reactivate Java.

      At least, that worked for ME!

  2. I can't make this work either. Tried everything. This is a photo on a website with rolling pages. Don't have enough time to isolate the one page I need and nothing seems to work. Advice please – or if you can help pls let me know and I'll give you the website. Thanks

  3. thx. it works……but i tried in chrome…………
    tools>option>under the hood>current settings> JavaScript > disable…….

  4. Thank you. Although it took a bit of organising, I managed to “steal” some pictures (which, in fairness, I HAD paid for!). These were “mine” for only 24 hours.

    Now they’re mine for good.

    Thanks again!

  5. Did you ever think that this is copyright infringement? In fact, in most cases it is. People try to make a living from their work online, and your lazy and disrespectful approach to it is just another example of why so many people blur right and wrong in this country. You should also tell your readers that there are many active and previously successful legal actions that have held people responsible for their ‘copying’.

    Great advice buddy.

  6. Hey man, that’s my sort of fix – simple, easy to use and free! Well done my friend.

    And actually it isn’t even necessary to restart IE – just click the “Apply” button before exiting the Tools – Internet Options dialogue box after making your changes. Then reload the page you’re trying to rip the pic from and right click will magically be enabled. Simples!


  7. Thank you very much. I am so much happy to learn How To Copy Text and Save Images On Right Click Disabled Websites. Now I can tell my friends “I AM THE BEST”
