    Sometimes you’d like to prevent users from right clicking elements or maybe even your entire page.
    There are a lot of tricks out there, JavaScript included, but I really like this one. It’s simple, and works for most modern browsers. 

    <div  oncontextmenu="return false">

    or for the entire page:

    <body oncontextmenu="return false">

    The beauty is that it can also be used to call a JavaScript function, to replace the context menu.

    <div oncontextmenu="myFunction()">
    function myFunction() {
        alert("You right clicked!");
