    I don't seem to see Caps Lock working in any version of macOS 10.7 - 10.12.3 when using parallels. Installed the latest tools, any idea if this is supported or not?

    Thank you

    Hi SamG1,
    Open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal)
    - Type in the following command and hit 'Enter':
    defaults write 'com.parallels.Parallels Desktop' 'HID Host Hook.CAPSLOCK Sync' -bool false
    - This command will disable automatic CapsLock synchronization between Host OS and Guest OS and will allow them to have different capslock states.
    - Also try to reinstall Parallels Tools and check if it works!

    - Is this command to be run on the VM or the Host?
    - The Parallels tools did not have any affect whatsoever.

    and is that the fully correct path to the com.parallels file?
