All Firestick Remote Shortcuts You Should Know About.
The Fire TV Stick is smarter than your regular twig and you can install apps, play games, or even display your computer screen on it. The Firestick remote is full of surprises too, for example, there are several hidden keyboard shortcuts that allow you to unlock hidden functions. Let’s check them out.
1. Adjust the display resolution
Although Firestick detects the resolution automatically, you can also change the resolution manually. Just press and hold UP Navigation + REWIND on the Firestick for ten seconds and the display will show the current resolution. Firestick will toggle between all available resolutions and you can set the resolution of your choice by pressing the Select button on the remote.
2. Reset Firestick remote control
I use multiple Firesticks and one of the most annoying things about this is that you can’t use one remote with multiple devices. Instead of navigating the system menu to unpair the remote and then pairing it with another device, you can simply perform a hard reset by pressing and holding the BACK + MENU + LEFT navigation button for 15 seconds. This will reset the remote control and you can start pairing it with another Firestick.
3. Reset your Firestick
If you ever want to reset the FireStick, you can start by pressing and holding the BACK + RIGHT navigation buttons for ten seconds on the Firestick remote.
4. Connect the remote control to the Firestick
Firestick will automatically detect the remote if it is nearby, but if it doesn’t appear, you can always use the manual method. Press and hold the SELECT button for ten seconds and it should pop out.
5. Restart your Firestick
If your Firestick stops responding and you want to restart it but are too lazy to get up, this trick will definitely come in handy. You can press and hold the SELECT + PLAY button for 10 seconds to initiate a forced restart.
6. Open the system menu
This is one of the most used functions that I discovered by accident. A long press of the HOME button on the remote opens up quick settings where you can access mirroring options, settings, or even put the Firestick into sleep mode. This is really convenient.
