Mouse right click acts like a "back" key

#1
In android the mouse right click acts like a back key. When you are using Kodi for instance you don't get a context menu after a right click. You will have to reach for your keyboard and press "c". It looks like there is no easy way to enable context menu with a mouse. I have found this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10041295/android-usb-mouse-right-click-correct-behaviour-ics but I am not a coder. If somebody knows (or is able to code) a simple switch button for mouse behavior on Minix android boxes it would be lovely!

In addition to @Marty 's suggestion, don't forget you can also create specific key maps in Kodi as well to achieve the desired behaviour(s).

If, as or when you've successfully set up a functioning key map for your requirements in Kodi you can also use a file explorer app to quickly navigate to the keyboard.xml file & simply make a copy/backup if you need it again in the future.

The file location is... Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/keymaps/keyboard.xml

Simply drop your saved preconfigured file into the location above & you won't need to potentially configure it again in the future too if you did need to start with a fresh Kodi install for any reason :).
