    Hello there,

    i used the search option, but i could not find a suitable answer... so i try it that way:

    I really really like to have finally Windows and OSX in one System really good combined! But even more i dont want to see the open windows in windows task bar AND in my Apple Dock. I'd like to see my windows tasks in the windows task bar and my apple tasks (including parallels of course) in my Apple Dock.

    i searched the option already and hope you can help me :)

    For Parallels Desktop 13 (and 12) there is a Virtual Machine configuration(http://kb.parallels.com/117287) option "Show Dock icons in Coherence only" in Configure->Options->Applications. It won't prevent creating Dock icons if Coherence mode is used, since Windows task bar is not displayed in that mode.

    Thank you very much for the help!
    I have Windows in Coherence Mode and removed the App Sharing in both directions. That way windows keeps it own tasks and apple keeps it own tasks. Also my Launchpad doesn't get filled with all the windows apps anymore.

    thank you so much for that great software! It is so great to use both systems at once!

    Hello @Dominick1, you're welcome. If you need to have in Coherence mode, then you need to enable Application sharing between your Mac and Windows. To know more, please refer this article: http://kb.parallels.com/4670 Thanks, Meena.
