Stop Users from Right-Clicking on Your Web Site

To prevent your users from performing any of the other commands available by right-clicking on a web page in Internet Explorer, simply modify the opening <body> tag of your HTML:

<body oncontextmenu="return false"> 
When the menu is requested, the oncontextmenu event runs. This cancels it instantly using JavaScript. The script isn't foolproof, but it should prevent a majority of the visitors from your site from accessing the "right-click" context menu.
