Hello

I am new to Android as I use a windows laptop with a mouse. Just bought a Galaxy A tablet which is great and although elderly I have manage to set everything up except!..............................................how do I right click on  touch screeen?

Eg. on my laptop I might want to say right click on a photo and send it to say a memory stick or even right click on a you tube video and select the url to send to a downloader - many things. Can I not do this on Android or do I have to set something in settings or download an App (which I do not understand)

Thanks everyone

Gordon

This answer is for a Galaxy Tab A 2016

 

Just buy a mouse ... but the right click close the application or the window,  it act like a, back button... or you can select the text with your finger and a window appeared, you just have to select the action you want to do like on the following picture...

For Youtube, just press on the arrow, it give you many choice like copiing the url link. If you click on the +, it had it to your list for seiing it later, if you click on the 3 dots you can choose the quality outpu and many others thing

If you buy a mouse, you need the cable adaptor Micro-USB/USB if it is a USB mouse. Sorry for the picture this is a wireless mouse,  the mouse is not attached to the cable...

Thanks for that. Do not want a mouse for the tablet as it makes it less portable. Have tried holding finger on screen but no window come up!

Is there something else I have to do in settings?

Thanks again

Hi  Maggie, you can buy a pen with rubber tip in one side, this will help you to select a image

Put the rubber tip on your image  (touching the screen)  and let the rubber touching the screen about 5-10 seconds and a small window will open
