    Due to apple's move to 64 bit in Catalina. I find myself wanting to run an older MacOS so I can still play my STEAM games. But I also want Catalina for other things. Upon making a virtual "Mohave", I noticed I get only one setting, and it might as well be 600X800..... I don't need 5K, but the option to have it would be great. Either way, this one setting it get is a square dimension (would be nice to have it fit the normal way (without "stretch")

    Hi MaxL7,

    To get access to dynamic resolution feature you need to manually install Parallels Tools using menubar > Action > "Install Parallels Tools.."
    Then run the Installer from the image connected to macOS virtual machine (you will likely notice it on the Desktop, having a familiar Parallels logo)

    However there is no 3D in macOS virtual machine, so some games won't run and some will be slow.
