    Platform: Windows 7 on Parallels 7

    When I press these two it seems to "exit" the current active window, both in and out of coherence mode.

    I still need the control and alt key to work in Windows so disabling one of them by Mac preferences isn't really and option.

    Its called smart mouse.

    If you want to automatically capture and release the keyboard and mouse input, you should install Parallels Tools in your virtual machine. The Parallels Tools installation enables the SmartMouse feature. You can configure or disable this feature in the Services Pane of Virtual Machine Configuration

    Thanks for the reply.

    I already had Parallels Tools installed so I tried disabling it.
    The control+option/alt combination still causes me to leave Windows when I disable SmartMouse.

    I've got used to this a little but any other suggestions are welcome.
