    Now, we tap on "Interaction control" itself.
    This will enable different options. There will be the "Interaction control" window, reading:
    • Customize the way you interact with applications and settings on your device. With interaction control, you can:
      - Block or unblock areas of the screen from touch interaction.
      - Disable Auto rotate screen and hard key functions.
      - Only show application notifications in the notification panel and the status bar.
      To outline the area you want to block on the current screen, or to disable interaction control, press and hold the home key and the volume down key at the same time. If Interaction control is enabled as part of the Direct access feature, press the home key three times instead to enable or disable it.
