How To Install Mouse Toggle On Android TV – NVIDIA SHIELD & More

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.

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.
