If you want to share what’s on your 2016 MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar? Here is a simple way to take screenshots of your Touch Bar Setup.
People are finding the new Touch Bar to be quite the useful addition to the Mac and macOS, but it turns out that configuring that Touch Bar, getting it set up just right, and configured workflow is vital to make the best use of the Touch Bar. It’s also really easy to share what’s on your Touch bar if anyone wants to see your setup online. You can easily show them.
Taking screenshots in macOS is quite simple. All you need to do is,
- Press “⇧⌘+3” or “⇧⌘+4” and this will allow you to take a screenshot.
- Just in case you want to take a screenshot of the Touch Bar rather than the desktop, than shortcut becomes “⇧⌘+6”.
- Apart from that, if you want to take a screenshot and have it remain on the Clipboard for pasting into the app of your choice, then you can do it by pressing “⌃⇧⌘6”.
If you wish to change the keystrokes required to take screenshots, then you can head on over to System Preferences → Keyboard → Shortcuts → Screen Shots and change it as you want, though default are as good an option as any.
Right now, if you take a screenshot of your new MacBook’s display, then the Touch bar will offer different options for where screenshots will be saved, those options amount to Preview, Mail and Messages but more is expected to be added in due course.
