    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... :thinking:

    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 :p ).

    Cheers!
