With this, one can easily differentiate between bogus information and good stuff. We also often find that only reading a piece from a website is not enough and we have to keep it saved so that we can read it over and over again. Now this is very easily done by highlighting and copying the text and then transferring it to some Word file and saving it for future use but there are quite a few number of websites that block user attempts to copy text from them. It is a big annoyance and many users have been dissuaded in their attempts to get it done. So here are 3 ways that I am providing for you to easily copy text from a protected website that does not allow it.Copying text from print settings
The first method passes in the web page you want to take protected text, access the print settings. We can do it with the shortcut Ctrl + P, and once here we will see the print preview. Through this preview, all you have to do is copy the text you want to achieve and, surprise, you may have jumped protection same.
How to copy text from a protected website?
I will provide three methods and all involve different approaches. You can choose the one which you think is the most suitable for you.
- In the Internet Explorer, you have to go to the Tools in the Menu bar and click on Internet
- You will find a number of tabs at the top where you have to click on Security. There will be another button which is called Custom which you have to click on.
- A Security Settings menu will appear where you will have to click on Active Scripting and then click on the Disable After that, you can click on OK and you will find that you can copy text from a protected website.
- In Google Chrome you can go to the Menu button in the right-hand corner which is signified by three dots. Click on it and then select Tools.
- There will be a Settings page where you have to click on Show Advanced Settings.
- Now you will see a Privacy option where you have to click on Content Settings.
- For Mozilla Firefox, you have to click on Tools from the Menu bar and select Options.
So that is all about the first method by which you can easily disable a website from keeping its text protected. Now, for the next two methods.
- The second method to disable the ability of a website to protect its content is by getting an extension installed on your browser. The RightToCopy is an extension that enables right clicking on any website. Whichever browser you use, be it Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, you can easily get this extension installed. Not only that but also this extension removes all the extra text that come along when you copy from a particular website.
- Lastly, there is the simplest method but one which escapes most people and that is why going to the printing options. Once you encounter a website that does not allow right clicking, you can just press Ctrl+P or go to the options and click on print, and then you can copy any text you like from the print preview option. Surprise surprise.. it has escaped your attention!
