This step-by-step detailed guide will show you how to kill all tasks in one click on NVIDIA Shield TV and Android TV.
Your Nvidia Shield TV is running slow or sluggish recently? Well, all those apps and tasks running in the background could be the culprit behind this.
When you close an app or move to another app on your Shield TV, it doesn’t close and runs in the background. When lots of apps are running in the background, it starts affecting the performance of your device and slows it down.
Unfortunately, there is no shortcut to close these background apps and kill all the tasks in one click. You have to install some apps from the Play Store for that purpose.
Here in this guide, I have used the TV Memory Cleaner app. You can also search for other cleaning apps for yourself to clear cache and background tasks.
