How to Customize the MacBook Pro Touch Bar

Oyetoke Tobi - Thursday, November 17, 2016

Do you know that you can customize the MacBook Pro Touch Bar? Yes you can. The Touch Bar is a thin OLED display strip that rests at the top of the keyboard on the new Apple's 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro notebooks which gives users a series of shortcuts, depending on the app they're using. So in case you don't like the default settings, you can always add and remove buttons in order to customize the Touch Bar to your own liking. 

Touch Bar buttons can be used for both Apple's own programs, such as Photos, iTunes and Maps and third-party offerings including 1Password, djay Pro with so many others. So you can use it for any app of your choice. 

So let’s go ahead and customize the Touch Bar on your MacBook Pro.

Click on File in the menu bar. So you need to open a window in that app to edit the Touch Bar preferences for that view.


Then select New Window.


Then select View.


Now, click on Customize Touch Bar.


So click and drag buttons down from the display to the bottom-side of the screen i.e. bringing them to the Touch Bar. You should be able to see the options for your current view only.


Hold and drag it to a different place if you want to move a Touch Bar button.


In case you want to remove a button from the Touch Bar, just hold and drag it to the far left end.


Then release your finger when the "Remove From Touch Bar" come up.
