    Yes! I am guessing you can remove Siri, but couldn't find the setting.

    Please reveal your secrets kind, sir.

    True that - the TouchBar has some potential for utility.

    Yet, reaching up there still feels like more work than say, using Alfred. but It's probably more of a personal preference, which I can appreciate.

    In general, our current means of input (touch pad, bar, mouse and keyboard) feels a bit dated for what we do.

    I ran an experiment last year with a midi-controller as an input device for design.

    I wrote about it here: https://www.designernews.co/stories/73410-ask-dn-midi-controller-for-shortcut

    Truth be told, I gave up.

    I'm back to my Microsoft Sculpt Keyboard (love that) and Magic Mouse most days.

    Realistically, I try to avoid the Apple MBP keyboards altogether, as they are hard on your fingers, wrists, etc.,

    And, I have two of the LG5Ks now, so there is little incentive to use the TouchBar. :)

      To customise the TouchBar globally, you go to System preferences > Keyboard > Customise Control Strip. You can also chose what happens when you hold down the Fn key (I have it set to show the expanded strip, the one you get when you click the little arrow next to the right most keys, which you can also customise by taping on the arrow while in edit mode).

      You can also customise what the touchbar shows in most apps by going to View > Customise Touchbar (though not all apps support this).

      I can see why you'd have less use for it with your setup, I am only using my macbook with no display or keyboard.
