    But then it would do that whenever I'm at my pc no? I definitely don't want that. This is my work computer.

    Ah yeah that's true. Fair.

    I have my games as Shortcuts on my PC desktop anyway, so I just navigate to those when the Shield loads in. But I realise that's not ideal for everyone.

    out of interest. If you go into Geforce Experience, settings, shield - do you have any games listed in the Gamestream section? If so did you add them manually?

    I use the controller mainly - double click using the triggers. But my keyboard is always connected to the Shield too, but I mainly use that for surfing. I've not got a mouse hooked up yet. For M+KB games, I sit at my desk. Controller, on the sofa via Shield.

    In Geforce Experience I have ~20 games listed. I think Geforce Experience only lists certain games, say ones which have Game Ready drivers and such. I've added some manually too and I've also made 'box art' for them, so they don't just appear on the Shield as grey boxes. Basically go on Google image search, then pick a piece of art and save as approx 3:4 (short edge/long edge) pixel ratio (I think). You don't have to be very precise.

    Iirc I had to add some executable to geforce experience as a game which basically takes you to the windows desktop, I launch all my games from there.

    The Shield TV Pro 4K is now 199.. is it worth it? I was considering the Amazon Fire Cube, though the shield is a lot more.

    The shield is still the best Android TV emulation box. It is also probably the best streamer box with plex too. Also the 4K AI upscaling is brilliant.
