    Hello,

    sometimes I have problems with my touchbar, right now my volume and brightness control do not work. Sometimes it is something else, you know what I'm talking about if you have one of the new Macbook Pros.

    I know that there is the useful Terminal command `killall dock` which restarts the dock (e.g. when the downloads folder is not behaving as it should).

    I was wondering if there is something similar for the touchbar, I don't want to restart the whole macbook each time the TouchBar is bugging.

    I tried to kill the "Touch Bar Agent" process from activity monitor, but the volume and brightness control still do not work.

    Try hitting the fn button, does that work? Of course you need to be in a typing field for the emoji to show up correct?
