This guide will show you how to install Mouse Toggle for Fire TV, Firestick, and Fire TV Cube.
If you side-load applications onto your Fire TV Stick, Fire TV or Fire TV Cube, you have probably noticed that some of them don’t work well with the remote control.
The reason for this problem is because most Android apps aren’t developed for the television.
They are meant to be used on a phone or tablet where the user is using their finer to navigate instead of a remote.
You can install Mouse Toggle onto your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick which will allow you to navigate these applications.
Once you double-click the play button on the 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.
Most Android TV Box owners don’t need a utility like this due to the fact that their remote has a mouse option on it.
How To Install Mouse Toggle For Fire TV or Fire TV Stick Guide
Step 1 – Turn on Apps from Unknown Sources
Step 2 – Enable ADB Debugging
Step 3 – Install Downloader
Step 5 – Type in the following shortcut to download Mouse Toggle depending on what Fire TV device you are using – some Fire TV devices require Mouse Toggle 1.06 to work properly.
Mouse Toggle 1.11 for Fire TV 1, Fire TV 2, Fire TV Stick 1, Fire TV Stick 2, Fire TV Cube: troypoint.com/mouse
Mouse Toggle 1.06 for Fire TV 3, Fire TV Edition: troypoint.com/mouse106
Step 6 – Install Mouse Toggle when prompted
Important Note: The Fire TV 3rd Generation and the Fire TV Cube has a bug that affects the mouse position unless the display settings are set to 1080p 50Hz. This issue also occurs with a real hardware mouse. So a temporary workaround until this is resolved is to adjust the display settings via the Fire TV settings (Settings – Display & Sounds – Display – Resolution – 1080p 50Hz).
TROYPOINT TIP: Mouse Toggle and dozens of other apps are available within the TROYPOINT Rapid App Installer.
This app allows you to install the best streaming apps and tools in a matter of minutes rather than installing each APK one by one. Use the link below to access this free application.
Troubleshooting Tips – If Mouse Toggle doesn’t start once you launch it, go back into Fire TV Settings / Device / Developer Options turn off ADB Debugging and then turn it back on.
If your pointer doesn’t appear after double-clicking the play button on your remote, try it again but do it faster.

IMPORTANT: If you’re trying to install unverified apps into your Firestick or Fire TV from the Amazon App Store, you can only complete it by side-loading or installing anything into your device without using the official app-distribution method. I recommend using a VPN to install such apps. Click this link to learn how to install a VPN for Firestick, Fire TV, Fire TV Cube.
Warning! Protect Yourself With A VPN
Most cord-cutters use a VPN and rightfully so.
The free streaming applications, addons, and paid IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.
Without a VPN, 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 IP Address is 126.96.36.199 – When you use a VPN, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.
A 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.
Its 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 2 – Hover over the search icon on your Firestick, Fire TV, or Fire TV Cube and type in “Ipvanish”
You may also find the IPVanish App in the Google Play Store for those of you who are using Android TV Boxes, phones, and tablets.
Step 3 – Click the IPVanish VPN option that appears.
Step 4 – Click the IPVanish icon under Apps & Games.
Step 5 – Click Download.
Step 6 – Click Open.
Step 7 – Enter your username and password to login. Your username is the email that you used to register for IPVanish service with and your password is automatically generated and emailed to you.
Step 8 – Click Connect button.
Step 9 – Click OK for Connection request if it appears.
Step 10 – You will notice that your IP Address changes along with location of connection. You are now operating anonymously through your device.
Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.
Congratulations! You are now protected by a VPN 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.
