Laptop computers on the touch screen are in the market for quite some time, but they are not yet underway. Apple tried to offer a compromise between the touch screen and a traditional one by introducing the Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro. Touchline replaced the function key and offered different functionality for different apps. Now, a developer has made the Touch Bar useful on the MacBook Pro running Windows.
Most of us use Bootcamp to install Windows on our Mac. This allows us to switch between operating systems and enjoy the best of both worlds. However, some features like TouchID are specifically intended for macOS and will not work on Windows. A Twitter handle developer imbushuo has ported Touch Bar functionality to work with Windows 1
You have to keep a few things in mind to get the touchline to appear on your MacBook Pro. First, you need to use a core driver built specifically for this purpose. According to the developer, one can connect the TouchBar as a USB or a USB display device. The developer selects a USBCCGP driver to switch screen configurations on Windows and made sure it supported FrameBuffer transmission.
Having said that, the touchpad suffers from several problems when used with Windows 10. Some users have reported battery charging issues while others may not use connection options such as Bluetooth or WiFi. Want to use the Touch Bar on Windows 10? If so, you can switch to the GitHub repository and download it.
