The Secret Menu That’s Hidden On Your Amazon Fire TV Stick – SlashGear

The Fire TV Stick’s developer menu is tricky to get to and might require several attempts before it displays on your TV screen. Here’s how to access it:

  1. Go to the home screen on your Fire TV Stick.

  2. On your remote, press and hold the center button and down button (on the circular navigation wheel) simultaneously for three to four seconds.

  3. Immediately let go and press the menu button.

  4. The Developer Tools Menu should now appear on the screen.

If this method doesn’t work, press the center button for one second, and then, without letting go, press the down button. Keep both buttons pressed for a few seconds, then release and immediately press the menu button. When holding the center and down buttons together, your Fire TV Stick home screen will scroll down quickly, which is normal. 

If you still can’t get the developer menu to display, try keeping the center and down buttons pressed for a couple more seconds before you hit the menu button. To close the developer menu, simply hit the home button on the Fire TV Stick remote.

It’s worth noting that if you have a very old Fire TV Stick or the software isn’t updated to the latest version, this trick might not work for you. We managed to get this menu up on devices running Fire OS 6 and Fire OS 7 but not on Fire OS 5.
