Internet is a place full of interesting websites which contain lots of article to print and copy on your computer. It is just sufficient to select an article you like (left-click and drag the pointer down), press CTRL+C to copy it on your clipboard and, right after that, press CTRL+V to paste it on your notepad to save whatever text you wish from a website. But what happen when this little trick doesn’t work?

Simple, it means that the website or the page has been protected to prevent people like you from “stealing” the content. Let’s see how we can break this restriction by applying this hack.

  1. Go to the web page you wish to grab the content from.
  2. Copy this code and paste it on your browser address bar: javascript:void(document.onselectstart=null)
  3. Press Enter.
  4. Copy and Paste whatever text you wish!
