For quite some time, touch screen laptops have been on the market, but they still have to go mainstream. By introducing Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro, Apple attempted to offer a compromise between the touch screen and a traditional one. Touch Bar replaced the function key and offered various features for various apps. Now, on MacBook Pro running Windows, a developer has made Touch Bar useful.
Most of us install Windows on our Mac using Bootcamp. This allows us to switch between operating systems and enjoy both worlds in the best way. Some features like TouchID, however, are specifically designed for macOS and won’t work on Windows. Touch Bar functionality has been ported by a developer with Twitter handle imbushuo to work with Windows 10. The Windows 10 Touch Bar will allow you to switch between apps instantly.
To make the Touch Bar appear on your MacBook Pro, you need to keep a few things in mind. First, you need to use a specially built kernel driver for this purpose. One can connect to the TouchBar as a USB or USB display device, as per the developer. The developer selects a USBCCGP driver to switch Windows display configurations and ensure FrameBuffer transfer was supported.
That being said, when used with Windows 10, the Touch Bar suffers from several problems. Some users reported problems with battery drain while others could not use connectivity options such as Bluetooth or WiFi. Do you want to use Windows 10’s Touch Bar?
