How to Right Click on Websites With Right Clicking Disabled

How to Right Click on Websites With Right Clicking Disabled. When websites employ right click impediment scripts, thus disabling the ability to use the mouse's dropdown menu, it's usually to prevent visitors from saving images. It's frustrating, however, if you want access to these images for benign reasons, e.g. a desktop backdrop, or to open the right click menu for its many other functions. Luckily, bypassing a site's right click barrier is just a couple of clicks away.
