Fix Touch Bar Volume Buttons

By  on  

The touch bar on MacBooks has been a source of controversy since the beginning. Many mourned the loss of the escape key, while others refused to buy a new laptop to avoid the touch bar completely. I’ve not had many issues with the touch bar but mostly because I don’t really use it.

One necessary usage of the touch bar is adjusting volume. Recently the volume portion of the touch bar stopped working for me; it was though I wasn’t even touching the volume icons. For a while I changed volume via command line but that grew frustrating. Luckily I found this handy command for restarting volume and brightness controls:

killall ControlStrip 

After executing that command, my touch bar volume buttons worked again!
