    This is a thread for Parallels 17 upgraders: Share any fixes or workarounds you had to figure out. Every big upgrade usually includes a few surprises.

    My first problem: If you don't have USB & Bluetooth sharing enabled in your virtual machine, the Parallels virtual mouse can no longer automatically escape at windows edges. You need to use Control+Command(Alt) just as you would if the Parallels tools weren't yet installed. Parallels 16 and earlier allowed you to remove USB & Bluetooth sharing without affecting mouse emulation. Re-add USB & Bluetooth sharing and all is well. It's not a big deal, but it might save some of you from repeatedly reinstalling Parallels Tools.

    No fix or workaround yet, but Under PD17 my Win10 VM's recognition of multiple monitors and/or their resolution settings are often wrong after unplugging or plugging in my LinkUp TB3 docking station that has an Apple TBolt display and a Samsung 4K monitor attached (laptop is a MBP16). This would almost never happen under PD16, but is routine now. Would love to know of a fix or workaround for this.
