    Hi

    Since upgrading to P10 I am having great problems moving windows between screens.

    I have a retina mac book pro, connected to 2 x 24" screens and I use the laptop display as well. This worked fine on P9.

    When I move to a different screen the first mouse click doesn't work and dragging windows is painful.

    Parallels 10 is very, very bad about display management. What in the world happened to the software to create such a dramatic reduction in functionality?

    I had a problem like this. I solved turning parallels of, moving to trash, empty trash, restart system, and reinstall parallels. Worked 100%

    Hmm, sounds interesting, but also a bit of a pain, I have to go and find my lic #
    But it sounds a bit like MS, doing an upgrade should cause this sort of problem.

    I have also noticed, when I have multiple screens open and I open a mstsc (remote desktop ) to another windows server, when I click off it pops up that message saying the numlock key has been held down. does it every time I clock off the MSTSC windows. and I have noticed on some mstsc I have caps lock on .

    So something funky is going on.

    Okay took the plung. deleted reinstalled, reinstalled tools.

    Still having problems. still having the numlock symptom as well.

    I thinking this has something to do with keyboard but not sure what. maybe syncing numlock across displays.

    anyway its huge step backwards.
