Right click feature on tablets

I have a Samsung tablet A and i have hooked up a keyboard and mouse with it. The right click button on my mouse defaults as a back button on my tablet. Is there a way to change this to have a pop up menu like on windows? or has that feature been disabled and the back button feature is hard coded into android instead?

There are no right-click actions or menus in Android. They considered it once, except it would be a left-click menu by having people tap with their left hand - but then they realized that the tablet would have trouble figuring out which hand you were clicking with. :)

Sometimes Android and the apps recognize long-press to call up a different function or menu. If you had a programmable custom mouse driver, perhaps you could program the right button as long press, but there isn't any way to do that in the default Android mouse driver.
