    I'm fairly new to Parallels configuration. I had installed the Windows 8 Release Preview, and then installed RTM via Dreamspark. However when I go to full screen the resolution is bad and has black bars on the left and right. Is there a way to correct this? Or just wait till Parallels releases an update? I'm running an early 2011 MBP.

    Im using win7 and Im having that issue also, in Parallels 8 this wasnt an issue. the corner escape for parallels isnt working either. Im not sure what the solution is. to get windows to fill the whole screen I have to boost resolution to 2500x something.

    Ok the Black bars on the left and right of the screen are due to the install profile selected. I selected gaming because I watch and convert some videos so i wanted something that worked well in a VM for playback. I have experianced in the past were in VM voices would be off.

    they use this to preserve the aspect ratio of the game. It was a quick fix for me. Hopefully it is for you also.
