    I edited the settings for mouse clicks to change it to just control instead of control-shift, and now it won't right-click in Windows. What's worse, even if I switched it back to control-shift, now even that doesn't work - so I've completely lost all right-clicking ability. I've tried restarting the VM and the whole machine.

    Hi JustinE3,
    Go to Parallels Preferences -> Shortcuts -> Mouse Shortcuts -> Secondary click and check whether it is enabled. If the issue persists, click on "Restore Defaults" and let us know how it works.

    I am seeing the same problem. Restore Defaults does not appear to do anything.

    I am facing the same issue with a 20.04 linux guest on a ARM M1 parallels desktop 17.

    The restore defaults button does not restore the defaults. Changing the shortcut to something else does not work either.

    Occasionally it starts working after alternating the settings, but this itself does not guarantee it too work.

    The latest parallels tools is installed although this should not affect the mouse clicking as that should happen on the host os level.

    Also have this problem using Windows 11.

    As same as above, I've tried restoring defaults and changing the shortcut to something else. Neither worked.

    Now I am stuck without a right click...
