Custom Right Click Context Menu in HTML CSS & JavaScript

Hello friends, today in this blog, you’ll learn how to create a Custom Right Click Context Menu in HTML CSS & JavaScript. In the earlier blog, I have shared how to create a Custom Price Range Slider in JavaScript, and now it’s time to create a custom context menu.

A context menu is a contextual, shortcut, or pop-up menu that appears on the mouse right button click. It contains a limited set of choices that are related to the selected object.

In this project (Custom Context Menu), the context menu appears on the mouse right button click and disappears on the mouse left button click. On this menu, there is a sub-menus too. This sub-menu change its position from right to left if there isn’t enough space to show it to the right side. You can watch a demo or full video tutorial of it.
