Enable right click

Posted by Agent X | Friday, May 08, 2009 | , , | 1 comments »

Lots of web sites have disabled the right click function of the mouse button... it's really, really annoying. This is done so that you don't steal (via right-click->save picture) their photos or images or any other goodies. Unfortunately, it disables ALL right-click functionality: copy, paste, open in new window.

It's easy to change, assuming your using IE:
Click "Tools"->"Internet Options"
Click the "Security" tab
Click "Custom Level"
Scroll down to the "Scripting" section
Set "Active Scripting" to "disable"
Click "Ok" a couple of times.

You'll probably want to turn this back to "enable" when your done... 'cause generally the javascript enhances a website.

    i have a new laptop, it is just probably the most simple one possible and i am used to an extremely expensive one with all the extras. i can't do a right click to do a save as on anything or to delete the regular way. i went to internet options and advanced ect. on security or advanced whatever,there is no place to enable right click. i tried to figure out what other term it may be listed as and nothing worked. i experiments. so no luck. i want to be able to right click to save things. also, when on a webpage though, there was a opitons to download something to save it to a file but on an email, i can't save anything such as a photo.
    HELP! mail4leah@yahoo.conm

    also it's so difficult getting used to no numbers pad on the right. my right hand isn't used to the format and keeps going to the wrong keys since i have this tiny keyboard 15 inch screen. just venting not part of my question. can't do symbols the other way ect. grrrrr
