    Hi,
    Config: macOS Sierra, PD 11, Windows 10; all with latest updates installed.
    My newest problem: In Microsoft Word or any text editor I can't use Ctrl-Right or Ctrl-Left to move the cursor by word (it just does nothing, but when I have more virtual desks in macOS then it would move to the next desk with Ctrl-Right). Very strange. It seems somehow that macOS intercepts and I don't have standard Windows keyboard behavior. Any ideas?
    Best regards,
    Ulrich

    Please try the below steps and keep us posted
    1.Right-click on the Parallels Desktop icon in the Dock > Preferences.
    2. Open Shortcuts tab > System Shortcuts tab.
    3. Send system shortcuts > Always
    For additional information, please follow this article
    Additionally, you may also try these steps
    1. Make sure the virtual machine is in shut down state.
    2. Open virtual machine configuration.
    3. Switch to Hardware tab > Mouse & Keyboard > set keyboard to Optimize for games & vice versa

    Yes, that did the trick (... system shortcut > Always). Thank you!

    I have system shortcuts-->send system shortcuts-->Always to enable F11 to work inside the Windows 10 VM. Can I make exceptions for Ctrl-left so that I can get back to MacOS easily?
