    This used to work but a few version upgrades ago it stopped. I want to press CTRL+C within Windows to copy something, and then be able to go to an application in OS X and use Command + V to paste it. How do I get this working again?
    thanks.

    hmm, it is now working, but I have to use the Apple command +c within Windows and not CTRL+C

    Hello FlatDog,

    What is your Parallels build and what is your Host OS?
    Do you mind using Apple+C?

    I guess I can live with it, but it used to work and something stopped it.

    I'm wondering if it is to do with the keyboard mappings in the Parallels preferences. I've not touched them but just looking at them it might be the cause.

    Hello FlatDog,

    Please try the following: in Remap keys field on Keyboard tab (Parallels Desktop -> Preferences) choose "Do not remap". Click OK.

    If you will not be able to copy-paste using Ctrl after that, choose "Remap CMD+ZXCVAF" and click OK again.

    Best regards,
    Xenos
