Customize the Touch Bar
We won’t spend any time debating whether the Touch Bar is useful or a gimmick. The bottom line is that you probably want to make use of the Touch Bar if you have a Mac device equipped with one.
You can actually tweak the Touch Bar more to your liking by going to System Preferences > Keyboards > Customize Touch Bar. Swap out any of the default controls for more useful ones — having a toggle for Night Shift or Do Not Disturb are good options.
Additionally, you can tweak the Touch Bar’s behavior in different apps, too. In the same Keyboards preferences menu, click on the dropdown menu next to Touch Bar shows.
