Mac Change Touchscreen Button Per App

New
  • Apr 07, 2014  If you cannot switch from the unresponsive VLC app, press Command-Option-Shift-Esc for three seconds to force it to quit. This key combination tells OS X to force quit the frontmost app. Option #3: Bash Terminal killall command option. Open the Terminal application and type the following killall command to kill the VLC app.
  • Use spectacle, a free open source app that has a bunch of handy window management shortcuts. While it doesn't change the default behavior of the green button, it makes it superfluous for me to do so as I can do everything using keyboard shortcuts without using the mouse. For full screen, press: cmd + option + F.

To switch between changing buttons for the current app and the Control Strip, just tap the Touch Bar. (You can’t customize buttons for all apps.) Add buttons: Use the trackpad or mouse to drag a button from the screen to the Touch Bar; buttons in the Touch Bar jiggle slightly. Rearrange buttons: Use your finger on the Touch Bar to drag a button.
