How to Use Mouse Toggle on Amazon Firestick and Amazon Fire TV

Mouse Toggle is a virtual mouse application that is used to navigate and operate some of the sideloaded applications on FireStick.

For those unfamiliar, a virtual mouse is an on-screen representation of a mouse that can be moved around and clicked just like a physical mouse. This is incredibly useful for apps that are not designed to work with the FireStick remote, as it simulates the touch screen feature.

Installing a Mouse Toggle can allow users to use these apps with the help of the mouse pointer. The mouse can be used and controlled through the FireStick remote, making it much easier to use apps that would otherwise be inaccessible.

We don’t recommend any third party application. You can search for Mouse Toggle online.
  • Open the Firestick Home
  • Click on the Settings icon
  • Choose the My Fire TV.
  •  Click on the Developer options.
  • Click on the Apps from Unknown Sources
  • Select the Turn On, and Mouse toggle is a safe app and therefore there is nothing to worry about
  •  Navigate back to the home page and select the Find menu
  • Click on the Search option
  • Type the Downloader and select it from the list
  • Select the Downloader icon
  • Click on the Download and wait for the app to install
  • Click on the Open to run the Downloader app
  • Once the downloader opens, click on Allow
  •  A prompt will be displayed, click OK
  • Home tab would be open with a text box displayed on the right side
  •  Allow the download to Finish
  •  Once the download is completed, you will be asked if you want to install the application. Click INSTALL.
  • Click on the Done
  • Launch the mouse toggle application and click the toggle to Enable the mouse service.
  • Check the box to always allow from this computer then click OK.

The installation is now complete and you can use Mouse Toggle on any application you’d like. To activate Mouse Toggle, you can now use it to operate apps (including PureVPN) on your Fire TV and Fire TV stick. Simply double press the Play/Pause button on the remote. When you’re finished and want to deactivate it, press the Play/Pause button once more.

      We now offer cities an countries both. Try with our Internet Freedom mode or Security/ Privacy mode and you will be to select between the two as per choice.

      For now we are only offering Countries but we will forward your suggestion to the concerned department to add it in our future plans .

No changed IP address is shown or no selection menu of that countries video material shows up to click on. Like a dead end man. What should i be getting anyway.??
