    I have a M1 Pro MacBook and a Dell monitor. Every time I start Windows 11 VM, I have to reset my "main display" and reset the display resolutions. Is there a way to make these settings permanent, so I don't have to reset them every time? Thanks.

    As a possible solution, kindly follow the below steps:
    0. Shut down the affected virtual machine.
    1. Open Control Center > select the cogwheel > Configure
    2. Select Hardware > Graphics > Change to "Best for external displays".
    3. Modify each screen resolution inside Windows 11 with the help article.
    4. Restart your Windows 11 and verify if the issue is present ?
    If the issue still persists, kindly reproduce the issue and collect a technical report (right-click Parallels icon in Dock > Help > Send technical data > check "Attach screenshots..." > press Send Report) and provide us with the report's 9-digit ID in reply to this post.
    Thank you.
