    Windows 8 Multitouch : Right Click ?


    Hi !

    I was using Windows 7 on my Samsung Slate Tablet and there were two ways to do a right click:
    - By Holding a finger until a circle appear, then by releasing it.
    - "Press and tap" method -> touch with one finger where you want to do a right click, then while holding this finger, touch the screen with another finger.

    The second method was the quicker to do a right click but it is not avaible in Windows 8...
    Did I miss something ? Maybe it will be included in next updates ? Is there a software to install who can add this ?

    Thanks all !!

    A lot of Windows 7 touch stuff gone, so I don't think we will see it again
