Apple added this feature to MacBook pros. The feature presents a touch bar provides users with multi-touch controls. Even though apple fans were excited about this feature at first, yet when they finally go tit use it they faced issues with it. Most problems related to it being unresponsive. If you are too facing this problem and want easy repair solutions stay tight because this blog post is going break down ways of what you should do when your touch bar is not responding or working properly.
Force Quit Troubling Apps
The touch bar frequently changes depending on what application you are using and what actions do they require from your MacBook. Because of that, sometimes, the touch bar becomes unresponsive or stop working. It either shows errored buttons or a button that is useless.
To rid yourself of this issue, you’d need to force shut the problematic application. Here is now:
Click the apple menu on the top right corner of your Mac screen.
Click on the “Force Quit” option and then shut down the app.
Double force quit the app to make sure it’s shut down, and if this app was, in fact, causing the problem, then by doing those steps your problem will be solved.
Refresh Touch Bar | Option 1
If it was not an application problem, then you might want to try refreshing the touch bar, you are basically cleaning the touch bar’s individual memory and resources. This helps in restarting the touch bar by distributing new resources. This helps in restarting the touch bar by disturbing new resources. and as a result, the problem will be solved. Here is how you can refresh the touch bar:
Launch terminal app- The terminal app is found in the utilities section in application. If you can’t find it, look it up using spotlight search.
Then, type in this command : pkill “Touch Bar agent”
Now refresh the touch bar by clicking the return key. This will possibly fix touch bar’s volume application.

Another way you could refresh the Touch Bar is from the activity monitor. You could use this if you are having difficulty following the previous option, specially if you touch bar backlight is not working. Here is how:

Look up the ” Touch Bar Agent ” process. This process manages your touch bar, so once you remove the process, then your problem will get fixed.
