The following step-by-step tutorial will show you how to install Mouse Toggle on Firestick, Fire TV, and Fire TV Cube.
Mouse Toggle is an easy to use application that works as a Mouse to navigate apps that aren’t compatible with the Fire TV Interface.
The reason for this problem is because most Android apps aren’t developed for television.
They are meant to be used on a phone or tablet where the user is using their finger to navigate instead of a remote.
You can install Mouse Toggle onto any streaming device including Firestick or other Android TV Box to navigate these applications.
Once you double-click the play/pause button on your Firestick Remote, a mouse pointer will appear on the screen.
You can then use that pointer to click various items within the applications that you are using.
For these reasons and more, we have included Mouse Toggle in our list of Best Firestick Apps.
The guide below will show you How to Install Mouse Toggle on a Fire TV Stick Lite.
However, these steps will also work for any variation of Fire TV including Firestick 4k and Fire TV Cube.
TROYPOINT TIP: The fastest way to install Mouse Toggle on any device is by using the TROYPOINT Rapid App Installer.
