How do you right click using an Android device
Are you using a mouse on your Android @donmiklu ?
Ah, then do you have a specific purpose for needing or wanting to "right click" on an Android?
I'm not aware of any app that might prompt one for this...
If you're asking about seeing additional context information (that a right click on a desktop) might show you, you would typically touch the 3 vertical dots/ellipses at the top right of the screen.
I am aware. What I am trying to do is lock cells in either Google sheets or excel sheets on Android devices. It may require an upgrade
Ah, now that's helpful .
I've not (yet) launched Google sheets on any of my Android devices (can you even use MS/Excel???), but I would think you'd be able to somehow highlight them and then select / touch somewhere else on the screen (a button or the aforementioned ellipses) to get a context menu.
Yep, I just installed Google Sheets on my Nexus 6P and it works exactly like I indicated above...touch a cell, drag a corner to highlight and cover other adjacent cells, and then touch one of the buttons at the bottom of the screen or select the 3-vertical dots (ellipses) at the top right of the screen for context-appropriate menu options.
And, yes, Google Sheets will indeed open up MS/Excel sheets--I thought maybe you were indicating that you could actually run Excel on your device (I'm not aware of that option, though ).
