The following tutorial will show you how to install Mouse Toggle for Fire TV, Firestick, Android, and more.
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 that 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.
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.

Warning! Protect Yourself With IPVanish VPNMost cord-cutters use a IPVanish VPN and rightfully so.
The free streaming applications, addons, and IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.
Without a IPVanish, your IP Address is being logged.
Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.
Your current identifying IP Address is 126.96.36.199
When you use IPVanish, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.
IPVanish VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.
This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.
The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.
It’s important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files. Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.
Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!
Step 1 Register for an IPVanish VPN account by clicking the link below.

Step 4 – Type in “Ipvanish” and click the first option.
Step 5 – Click the IPVanish VPN app.
Step 6 – Click Download.
Step 7 – Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.
Step 8 – Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.
You will get your username and password when you register for an account.
Step 9 – Click Connect.
Step 10 – Click OK.
Step 11 – Success! Your identifying IP Address has changed and you are now anonymous.
Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.
Congratulations! You are now protected by IPVanish which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.
If you ever need to stop the VPN service, simply re-launch the application and click the DISCONNECT button.
