Right Click on Android Tablet-How?

Likes # 0

Hi All I have just purchased a budget priced Android Tablet and I wish to download an Ebook instruction manual directly from a Website, hence the need to "right click to save as". I have searched all weekend on various sites including PC Advisor-Android FAQ's and there is no real answer out there. I understand that if I plug in a USB mouse that should give me the option, but I don't own one. My question is: how do I find the 'right click' option on the Android Tablet on-board keyboard?

If you press and hold on the link, does the pop up menu give you any options to save ?

There doesn't appear to be a "right click" context menu similar to that in Windows. I've just tried plugging in a USB mouse and right clicking goes back to the previous screen. Just a thought but, if you open the instruction manual by clicking the link, does the menu button then give you a "Save" option?

I thought "Right Click to Save As", like the other context menu items, is a Windows function, and therefore won't be available with other OSs

If it's a true eBook then it will download if you simply click on the link. As the others say 'this isn't Windows' so it won't work like Windows.

Thanks all for your replies. I'm a newbie when it comes to computers and I just thought it would work the same as a P.C. but judging by all your replies I have some further messing around to do before I can make it work for me!!

Cheers all

Hi again all

I have just managed to get this manual do download by clicking on it as you advised and it appears as a set of numbers and letters ending in .epub, in a "download history" menu. However I can't get the file into the pre-loaded e.reader which is on the Tablet desk top, hence I can't access it. Can someone advise please on how to send it to the e.reader?

Once the file is in the Tablet, clicking on it should automatically open it in the reader app.

If you don't already have it, the ES File Explorer app is well worth installing.
