During the exam, the Bar Examination Committee will disable MacBook Pro from accessing the Internet, apps and files, but Touch Bar on MacBook Pro can break these restrictions, that’s why Touch Bar must be disabled.

  4. In the second drop-down menu, select Display F1, F2, etc.

After finishing the above settings, you will see the Touch Bar displays default function keys. The text prediction can be restored anytime it’s needed.
