I had not anticipated that there would be anybody so 'out of touch' (!) that they wouldn't even think to try a long-press (touch-and-hold) gesture, since that is an almost universal way of opening a context menu on a touchscreen (it's the direct equivalent of a right-click in Windows).
Being a new tablet user, and having never used a touch-screen device ever before and being a committed keyboard jockey, I too was stumped by many operations (how do I open the keyboard? How do I close it so I can see the display again? where's the File menu? Where's the Menu menu? etc) but then I suddenly remembed encountering a Mac with a single-button mouse 30 years ago and thought: how did I do something other that 'select' with only one button? Ah, hold it down. Bingo!
