    I am running Windows 10 with Parallels Desktop 12 in a Mac running OS X Sierra. I keep getting this message box asking me if I want to change my default browser to Parallels Desktop or to keep using Chrome (I have both Chrome for Mac and Chrome for Windows). Sometimes the question is the other way round, asking me if I want to change to Chrome or keep using Parallels Desktop.
    Why is this happening?

    Hi @bats66 , Please try Configure > Options > Web & e-mail > Web pages > Open in Windows (to permanently assign it to Windows) and let us know if that helps.

    This did not solve the popup issue for me. Is there another way to stop this? I want windows to open in windows, and mac to open in mac.

    Hi @MarkS33 , is this happening only when you try to open any particular links from any application?
