How to download disabled download, print and copy Google files

Hi, Please someone help me to download disabled (download/print/copy) google files which are shared with me. I’ve already tried Airexplorer and Cyberduck, none of them is working.


Typical share URL looks like this:

Direct download link equivalent:

So as you can see, just change FILE_ID from typical share to link that is in direct and that is it, I’ve used this a long ago, I think it works till today try it.


@Lublu_otdihat Nope, that’s not working. Getting 403 Forbidden ( do not have access to this page. )
It’s for public share things, not for disabled things.

So here it is I found and I checked it is working 100%, go to link you want to download and Right Click > Inspect Element > Console and paste this script: And your file is downloaded as PDF…

let jspdf = document.createElement( "script" );
jspdf.onload = function () {
let pdf = new jsPDF();
let elements = document.getElementsByTagName( "img" );
for ( let i in elements) {
let img = elements[i];
if (!/^blob:/.test(img.src)) {
continue ;
let canvasElement = document.createElement( 'canvas' );
let con = canvasElement.getContext( "2d" );
canvasElement.width = img.width;
canvasElement.height = img.height;
con.drawImage(img, 0, 0,img.width, img.height);
let imgData = canvasElement.toDataURL( "image/jpeg" , 1.0);
pdf.addImage(imgData, 'JPEG' , 0, 0);
} "download.pdf" );
jspdf.src = '' ;

@Lublu_otdihat , this is not useful. I’m trying to download disabled download video files, and all i was getting is blank pdfs

hey try this extension

I am using it and I am able to download the disabled download videos.
if you are searching for other browser then search with the name :video download helper" to find appropriate addon / extension for that particular browser.
downloading is easy.
open the google drive video, play it and click on extension icon.
hope that helps.
