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:
