The following guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions to Install Mouse Toggle app for Android TV devices. Often times, 3rd party applications installed on an Android TV Box such as NVIDIA SHIELD will not function properly without a mouse.
With mouse toggle app installed, you can access and use all features and applications on your preferred device.
In the instructional guide and video guide below, I am using an NVIDIA SHIELD as a streaming device. However, these steps should work for the Nexus Player, Mi Box, and Mecool M8s Pro L.
It is important to note that this will not work on Android TV Boxes running stock Android. This will only work for devices running the true Android TV Operating System.
If you would like to install Mouse Toggle on a Fire TV device, this can also be done in a few simple steps:
Once installed, mouse toggle will function just like a regular mouse by using the directional pad located on your remote.

Protect Yourself With A VPN When Using This Technology
Most cord-cutters use a VPN to hide their Internet activity while streaming movies, TV shows, and live channels.
If you aren’t using a VPN when accessing free or low-cost media, your Internet Service Provider, government, hackers, and app developers can log everything that you do online through your visible IP Address.
Your current IP Address is 126.96.36.199
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 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 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.
