    I am running 11.2.0 (lastest update) everything runs smoothly running across two screens, but if I disconnect the 2nd screen (HDMI), when its connected again I have screen refresh issues. The windows VM display will not refresh correctly. I can "wipe" over the screen with the mouse which will slowly display icons on the desktop, but basically I need to restart windows either display can be used again. The same thing happens sometimes if the MAC goes to sleep, although not consistently.
    Keen for a fix on this one. As long I stay connected to the 2nd screen, everything is ok, but I often need to move around during the day and disconnect from the 2nd screen.

    I have this exact issue. I am currently running Windows 10 in Parallels 13 on a 2016 MBP.
    My previous set up was Windows 7 in Parallels 12 on a 2014 MBP. I had the issue with that setup as well.
