    I use control+shift+eject to lock the screen.

    Anyone know how to do this with the 2016 touchbar model? Thanks in advance.

    I'd like to know this too.

    On keyboards without the Eject button it was replaced with control+shift+power but that doesn't work on the new MacBook Pro's.

    Click on your account name in the top right, then click Login Window?

    I am aware of these options but I prefer the keyboard short cuts.

    Spoke with Apple support. The analyst (much to his own surprise) said a keyboard shortcut no longer exists. The only way would be to create an Automator script.

    You can add a "lock" button to the touchbar when you customize the layout in system preferences.

    Excellent! Thanks!

    For anyone interested, it's under 'Keyboard' in System Preferences, 'Customize Control Strip.

    Open keychain access then in the preferences area select show keychain in toolbar. Then click on the little lock in your toolbar and click lock.

    I normally use a hot corner but sometimes I'll use the toolbar method as well

    The hotkey Command+Control+Q will lock your computer.

    This! I think it's only introduced with High Sierra, and it's so handy
