    When I click my mouse the cursor seems to blink 2 or 3 times effectively clicking the screen 2 or 3 times as well. For example if I click to check a check box the check box will tick and then untick straight away after only clicking once. It's almost like it's switching between the Mac and Windows mouse multiple times when I click.

    I've tried changing the settings for optimising the mouse for games but it makes no difference. Drivers are up to date in Windows.

    I feel like I'm posting in this forum constantly lately. Not impressed at all. Please can someone help?

    Update: I ran the command 'defaults write com.apple.Dock workspaces-auto-swoosh -bool NO' in my macOS terminal to stop my mac from autoswtiching to every open Windows VM space when working with 3 monitors. I noticed that the triple/double mouse inout problem on occurred when the space for each monitor wasn't displaying Windows/Parallels. I.e, if I had my macbook screen in full screen macOS Chrome, one of my monitors on Parallels/Windows Visual Studio, and my other monitor on Parallels/Windows Chrome, and I click anywhere in my VM the problem occurred. When my macbook was also focused on the VM the problem didn't occur. Why is this?

    Why do al 3 of my monitors have to be focused on Parallels for the mouse clicks to work correctly?

    Whoa! This may explain my experience EXACTLY!!!! I have been complaining about the Parallels multiple monitor support for about a year now... I started seeing the mouse/trackpad clicking/moving on its own starting in one of the 13.1.x versions and it continues to this day in 13.2.0. What was the source for the 'defaults write...' command.

    Nightmare - what do you mean by the source for the command?

    I've got the same problem. One mouse click = two mouse clicks. It screws up everything. Unusable.

    I had a similar problem, the mouse was effectively sending double clicks when using specific software (called Altium Designer). As far I knew other programs did not have the double mouse click - just Altium. I solved the problem by creating a new Parallels VM and migrating over. No problems since (fingers crossed).

    Right now I'm running Parallels Desktop Version 14.1.2. I always keep Parallels up to date; in fact, I updated Parallels Desktop yesterday. No sure which version I was using when I had the double mouse click problem, but I checked my previous posts and I can see I posted about this on December 16th, 2018 - so I was likely using Parallels Desktop version 14.x.x

    My problem was XMOuse software that I forgot to turn off

    XMOuse? I take it this isn't part of Windows or Parallels Desktop. True?
