    I think it just depends on how your workflow is setup.
    You should be able to set a desktop as sticky to left or right.
    It should know that if your are running Parallels, in FSM, with both monitors enabled that if you click on Parallels, it switches you to your PC desktop in FSM.
    But, turning it off sure fixes our problem too.

    Am on Build 9.0.23350 and multiple display will only work if 'Displays have separate Spaces' is disabled. Unacceptable. Parallels: I don't want to be forced to disable a useful OS feature because you can't figure out how to make this work, please.

    Running Mavericks
    Mission Control Preferences set to "Displays have separate Spaces"
    Two Thunderbolt monitors connected to MacBook Pro Retina with MacBook screen closed. Two Thunderbolt monitors attached to MacBook Pro in this configuration: MacBook->left display->right display
    Parallels 9.0.23350
    Windows 7 Pro

    The Parallels virtual machine window does not appear on relaunch when used on the right display. Launching MISSION CONTROL shows the virtual window on the right display. To get to the window I drag the virtual window to the left display, exit Mission Contorol and I can then barely see the edge of the virtual window on the left side of the left display . I drag the virtual machine window back to the right display and everything works fine until i shut down Parallels.

    Each time I launch Parallels I have to go through this procedure to make the virtual window visible on the right display.

    I like using "displays have separate spaces" which works perfectly for all my applications except Parallels.

    Problem report submitted to Parallels, ID 31344582 support code 41644-24454

    The support request may not have made it to the Parallels server due to OPENDNS blocking the site due to certificate security issues on the Parallels server: http://b3.mookie1.com/2/TRACK_Paral...forMac/Parallelshomepage_SX_NonSecure@Bottom3

    I'm still waiting for a fix for parallels to work correctly with multi-screen displays with the "displays have separate spaces" option selected.

    I'm running the same set up as you (MBP closed with two TB monitors). However, I am using P8.

    Did you ever get this to work for you with "Displays have Separate Spaces" checked?

    One thing that worked for me was I re-installed Parallels tools from the Parelles "Actions" menu.
