Many websites block helpful functions that are possible with the right-click. However, a browser extension can put an end to this and reactivate the useful features of the context menu on almost all websites.

Have you ever found an interesting image or video while browsing the internet that you want to save for later, only to realize that some websites, like Instagram, make it challenging by disabling the right-click context menu options for downloading? Don't worry, as the solution comes in the form of the "Allow Right-Click" browser extension.

This free and open-source extension serves a simple yet powerful purpose – it restores the familiar context menu functionality even on websites that restrict it. So, whether the context menu is completely disabled or specific downloading options are unavailable, this extension steps in to make saving images or videos hassle-free.
