How to disable and enable the touchscreen on the All New Kindle Oasis 2 (2017)?

You must be aware of the physical page turn buttons that come with the all new Kindle Oasis 2. This is a vintage and considerate design that many people are thrilled about. You can turn pages either by pressing the physical page turn buttons on the thicker end of the eReader or tapping on either side the screen on Oasis 2.
However, with the touchscreen enabled, some people find they always inadvertently turn pages when they only wants to define a word or highlight a passage. The waterproof Kindle Oasis 2 is designed to be used in a bathtub or on the beach. If we can disable the touchscreen temporarily, the touchscreen will not work when water splashes on it until we wipe off the droplets. Moreover, we can reply on the actual page turn buttons to turn pages exclusively which allows us to hold the Oasis 2 like holding an actual book without accident page-turns.

Now let me show you how to deactivate the touchscreen on Kindle Oasis 2 as follows:
  1. Open a book from your Oasis 2. The option to disable the touchscreen is located on the setting menu list while reading.
  2. Within the book go to the menu on top right of the screen, and tap the three dots located in the upper right corner.
  3. Choose “disable the touchscreen” from there. A dialogue with instructions appears, you can cancel or select OK

If you want to use the onscreen features, don’t forget you’ve deactivated the touchscreen and assume that your Oasis is not functioning well. What you need to do is to enable the touchscreen again. I’ll list two methods to make it happen:

1. Press the power button to put the device in sleep mode and press the power button to wake it.
2. Turn the Kindle off and back on again, or you can close and open the sleepcover if you’ve got one.
