Subject description: On a tablet
 

Can anyone tell me how to execute a right click to expose a context menu with a touchpad? I have a tablet (RCA Viking); the dumb Assistant (help) tell me to right click, but I don't have a mouse.

That is what my touch pad does.
One finger tap is left click.
2 fingers tap is right click.

menu->Setup->Mouse/keyboard Wizard->Touchpad->Tapping

Setup the way you want it to work.

My Dell laptop has switches hidden under the lower left and lower right corners of the touchpad for left- and right- clicking. Dell does not point this out explicitly anywhere that I found.

Thanks to all who replied. Puppy remains the friendliest, most helpful forum for Linux.

No, none of the proposed solutions worked, but I discovered that holding my finger on the word or icon raised a context menu (not however, the ones I'm used to with Linux OS's). Thanks again.

It would work in Puppy if you find the touch pad control panel and set it up to do so.
It is just that the default set up in Windows has it.

Does the touchpad in general work?
Have you checked this?
menu->Setup->Mouse/keyboard Wizard->Touchpad->Tapping

It's an Android, and I'm slowly getting used to the differences. Holding still for a second brings out a context menu, but not menus I see generally. I suspect that everything I need to do is doable, though.

So your question was about how to right-click in Android?
