This is a step-by-step guide on how to install Mouse Toggle on FireStick, Fire TV, and Fire TV Cube.
Mouse toggle is a virtual mouse application that is used to navigate and operate some of the sideloaded applications on FireStick.
Without a virtual mouse, it may be quite difficult to use third-party apps that don’t work with the FireStick remote.
Installing a Mouse Toggle can allow users to use apps that require a touch screen feature, with the help of the mouse pointer.
The mouse can be used and controlled through the FireStick remote. Since this is a third-party app and not official, it is advised to use a VPN before installing it.
We recommend using Surfshark VPN as it keeps you completely secure and is super affordable.
