    OK, my Windows 11 VM had gotten quite large, so I deleted it and installed again using the Windows 11 quick install. This was about one week ago, after Parallels and Microsoft announced official support for Windows 11 ARM on Parallels.

    Windows 11 itself runs very well, starts up in about 5 seconds. Everything seems to work good.

    But ever since, after I shut down Windows, "Windows 11" stays in the macOS menu bar, and selecting Quit does nothing. I cannot seem to get Parallels in the menu bar again.

    My only option that I know of is to Force Quit Parallels Desktop.

    This is on a M1 MacBook Pro 13" with 16GB RAM, 600GB free space, macOS Ventura 13.2.1, Windows 11 Pro for ARM v22H2, Parallels Desktop 18 for Mac Version 18.2.0 (53488)

    Thank you for reporting this issue!
    Let me ask you to reproduce the issue again and once your Windows VM is shut down but "Windows 11" stays in the macOS menu bar, right-click Parallels Desktop icon in Dock > Help > Send technical data > click 'Attach a screenshot..' > send the report. Once done, kindly post the report ID here.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
