How To Copy From Right Click Disabled Websites

Copy From Right Click Disabled Websites
Copy-pasting some body else work is very common. Though, very few people actually give the credit link or mention about the source. Specially, in Blogging people copy each other content and increase plagiarism. Apart from all Auto-bloggging tool, most common form of copying a page is by selecting text > mouse right-click and copy the content. Though in WordPress, we can easily disable this by using disable right click WordPress plugin. Though according to me right click gives a bad user experience and for Bloggers, you can always fight such copy-paste blogger using Google DMCA.

Now for me, when I have to write a tutorial, I take information from the pages on Internet and give proper credentials with link in the post. Now, the problem which I have faced recently is many of these sites have right click disabled and it’s pain to copy from these sites normally. So, here I have compiled a series of possible ways to copy content from those pages. FYI, many websites disable CTRL +C options to ensure better security from hackers and malicious sites.

Ways to copy text from Right click Disabled pages:

Most of the bloggers and webmasters uses JavaScript technique to disable right-click, to prevent scrapers sites from stealing their content.

Many times we often come to websites where we found contents useful like how-to , Guides and we copy it into worded or notepad. Generally we select some text and then right click to copy. But on Protected sites a message box appears saying “Right-Click on this site is disabled. Hold Ctrl key and click on link to open in new tab

But there are numerous way through one can copy contents from Right Click protected sites

  • By disabling browser JavaScript in browser
  • Using Proxy Sites
  • By Using the source code of the site

Disabling JavaScript in Browsers [Google Chrome]

In Chrome browser, you can quickly disable JavaScript by going to settings. See the screenshot for better explanation:

chrome disable javascripts

  • Goto Setting >> UnderHood Tab >> Content Settings
  • or enter  chrome://settings/content
  • Then Select Do not allow any site to run JavaScript

Similarly if you are using Firefox, you can remove the tick from “Enable JavaScript” option.

Using Proxy Sites

There are many proxy sites, which let you disable JS while browsing. All you need to use those proxy sites, which offer such features and you can quickly use right-click on click disabled sites.

Through Viewing Source Code

If you have to copy the specific text content and you can take care of HTML tags, you can use browser view source options. All the major browser give an option to source of the page, which you can access directly using the format below or by right click. Since, right click is out of question here, we will simply open chrome browser and type: view-source: before the post URl Like

  • view-source:

And find the paragraph or text you want to copy and then paste it into any text editor.

Well, using this trick ethically or unethically is in user hand but for a normal blogger like me and you, this tip will certainly help. Do you use any other plugin or add-on to copy content of pages with right click disabled? Do you also see this feature as bad user experience?

    You can also use firefox to view your page then click on the book option that is on your address bar!

    You can also use snipping tool. (If you are using Windows 7) Just click snipping tool (which is available in start or if you don’t find it, just type snipping tool in the search option) and then capture the screenshot of that text which you wish to copy by dragging your mouse cursor and save it in your computer!

    Just save page as “Webpage, HTML Only” and then you may copy page contents offline. By inspecting elements of webpage only programmer who know javascript and HTML can enable text to be selection/copy through editing code.

    In chrome its lot simpler, just Right Click the Right click disabled webpage two or more times, then a dialogue box will appear saying
    “Prevent this page from creating additional dialogues”
    Select it and “OK” .
    Boom!! its done :)

    Thanks for nice tutorial, I don’t think it’s a great idea because disable javascript will affect all website we will go to. Why do you want to copy some text of these website? Save them all and read it offline.

    Most of the times I faced the same problem when I wanted to copy some text. The only option I chose to use is checking the source code of the website. I never thought of using proxy sites to check them. Anyway, learnt about proxy sites for this job. Will try that once to check.
