    I have a MacBook Pro connected to two external monitors. I was able to figure out how full screen works. But is it possible to have my MacBook and 1 monitor be full screen Windows and have one monitor keep the Mac desktop visible ?

    If so, how ? Thanks

    You can do it.
    in macOS Preferences > Mission Control, make sure that "Displays have Separate Spaces" is enabled.
    in the Parallels Windows virtual machine configuration > Options > Full Screen:
    Enable "Use all displays in full screen"
    Disable "Show and hide space on all displays simultaneously"

    Then simply start Windows, switch to FullScreen and create a Mac space on a monitor that you don't want to be occupied with Windows.
    It is better to make it a primary display too, so new windows and apps will open there.

    same set up parallels 15.0.0 Windows 10 - followed above instructions->Windows opens as window, View/use all displays in fullscreen is ticked toggling on/off makes no change. Using the fullscreen button any the top Left of the window-> full screen on the one monitor which then reverts back to viewing in a window...
