    On a Windows 10 native machine, when I right-click on the start menu, it brings up a specialized system menu where I can access the control panel, services, command prompts, computer management, etc. Left-clicking the start menu brings up the standard windows 10 "programs" menu with the little blocks. I can get to this "programs" menu just fine in Parallels by right-clicking the Parallels icon.

    How do I bring up the specialized system menu in a Windows 10 VM under Parallels 11?
    This has probably been answered but I could not find it in the forums.

    Hello Chris_Barker,
    The same feature can be used in Windows 10 virtual machine to access programs and features, Device manager,control panel and other programs.
    Refer to http://kb.parallels.com/9151 to make right-click on Mac and in Parallels Desktop virtual machine.

    I already have the right-click set up on my Mac.
    I will include some pictures to explain my issue better.
    When I'm NOT in coherence and I right-click the window's start menu I get this "Control" menu:

    However, when I'm in Coherence and I right click on my "Windows 10" virtual machine in the Mac's Dock I do not get the above menu.

    When in Coherence how do I get the menu pictured above to come up?
    Thanks!

    Oh come on. This is such a simple straightforward question regarding one of the most basic elements of Windows. Why abandon a thread like this and refer it to a ticket. It affects everyone.

    Hello BenK1. Are you experiencing the same issue as the one described earlier in this thread? As in, you can right-click on the Windows icon and have the control menu appear in normal Windows view mode but not in Coherence? If yes, then please run the virtual machine in Coherence mode, generate a Problem Report ID and reply with the report ID number. We'll then investigate.
