    Easy question i.e. dumb question :)


    Is there a way to simulate a right click on a touch screen in tablet mode?

    Doesn't holding your finger on the item you want a right click for and waiting for the context menu to appear, work?

    Not when I try it in the open screen. I want to edit display and such, but the right click menu that is available in the PC mode doesn't happen when I am in tablet mode?

    Oh I see. Does your tablet have a pen ? It's just a guess, but if so, have a look here to see if there is some kind of "Pen & Touch" Dashboard for it as shown on this page (where there is shown an option to assign a button for Right clicking).

    Good luck.

    Thanks Das!


    Thanks Das,
    That was very interesting and I learned a lot from it. At this point, I am just assuming that tablet mode does not offer the screen right click to reach the display settings. That's a bit disappointing but it is what it is.

    Thanks again Das

    You're welcome. Sorry it didn't help you solve your objective, but at least you learnt something new.
