    Hello everyone,
    I've never used Parallels before. Currently I'm in the process of evaluating all my possible options for a new laptop, macOS vs. Windows etc.

    An important question for supporting my decision making process:
    - is it possible to connect an external Windows keyboard while using Parallels and use it the exact same way as a „real" windows keyboard would be?

    Yes, you can connect an external Windows keyboard when using Parallels and use it just like a "real" Windows keyboard. Parallels supports a wide range of external keyboards, including USB, Bluetooth, and Thunderbolt keyboards.

    Thank you Adeboye. I installed the Trial but had too much going on at work and didn't really have time to test it properly. Now it has expired. Is there a way to re-install the Trial again?
