    I've got a MacBook running High Sierra (macOS) and my VM is Ubuntu (Linux). I accidentally pressed the blue button putting it (Ubuntu) into Coherence mode. I'd like to exit out of Coherence mode - but have no idea how, what button that'd be or even where that button would be. Any help much appreciated.

    If you right click the parallels application in the dock on the bottom of your screen, you should see a bunch of options. One of them should be 'View' or something similar, you can exit coherence there by choosing 'Windowed' or 'Fullscreen'.

    Parallels started an upgrade while I was in the middle of some other work, and the update defaulted it to Coherence, while I was too busy to go figure out what it was saying. Thanks for the post - yeah to summarize - right-click Windows 10 in the dock, then select View/Exit Coherence. I hate that Parallels chose to default the upgrade this way and force everyone to figure out for themselves how to turn it OFF. Took me the 30 minutes to figure out that my Parallels/Windows wasn't BROKEN. Big THUMBS-DOWN to PARALLELS for forcing this on us as an upgrade default!!!!!!!
