    Hi,
    I want to assign specific functions to my mouse buttons when i work in excel that runs on windows 10 (parallels).
    I have my mouse connected with bluetooth to my mac. In the Logitech options program (installed on Mac) i manage the assignment of buttons. I have selected the parallel excel application and assigned all the buttons, however this is not working in windows.

    If somebody can help that is much appreciated!

    Please let us know the versions of Parallels Desktop and Mac OS X.
    Step by step instructions, how you've configured?

    I have Mac OS Sierra 10.12.2 with parallels desktop 12.1.3

    I discovered that in coherence mode the buttons assigned to programs run in Parallels work, but if I run it without coherence mode then the specially assigned buttons don't work.

    Hello @RobertH18 ,
    Please open Parallels Desktop preferences > Shortcuts > OS X System Shortcuts > set to "Always" and check the behaviour.

    I have set OS X System Shortcuts to Always --> Restarted everything but it still shows the same behaviour.
    In coherence mode the specially assigned mouse functions work, but outside of coherence mode the " standard assigned buttons" are active.

    Please try reinstalling Parallels Tools http://bit.ly/1cZWAa3 and keep us posted how it works.
