    I use a 13" MBP (16 GB) to run a Monterey guest on a Monterey host (macOS 12.3.1) with Parallels 17.1.2 (51548). Parallel Tools are installed in the guest system.

    Seems like a straight-forward case to get key mappings right. But no: I have Windows-style keymappings. E. g. the @-symbol is not Mac-style option-L as shown on the MBP keyboard but option-Q.

    Same for other characters (see title).

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Is anybody else having this problem?
    My installation went smooth, so I am wondering if this is currently a problem in the default installation.
    I find it quite bothersome to work around for all the keys affected.

    Case closed. I have returned my license, because my experience of virtualizing macOS on macOS on an M1 was so disfunctional:
    I am under the impression that this kind of virtualization is utterly neglected, even though it has so many use cases in testing, development, security, separation of identities.

    "utterly neglected" -- I absolutely agree.
    Parallels macOS on M1 is a joke.
