    We have given support to own context menu by restricting the default browser context menu, which provides you the options for quick access but, with that clipboard action are restricted based on browser behavior.

    However we can disable the context menu by using ShowContextMenu API and it needs to be set as false, if you wish to continue with default browser context menu.
