    I would like to use Win10 VM with external keyboard and mouse while having another user on physical Macbook Pro using the laptop keyboard and trackpad. Is this possible?

    Running: Macbook Pro (late 2013), Parallels Desktop for Mac Home Edition v13.3.2
    VM running Windows 10 and attached to Monitor via HDMI and Microsoft Ergo Keyboard and Mouse (Bluetooth adapter plugged into USB)

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi ShakMan. Please start the virtual machine. Select Devices (from the Mac menu bar) -> USB & Bluetooth -> Device name. If there are any specific drivers available for the keyboard & mouse, install it in the Windows virtual machine and check if it works fine.

    Hello Sathiya, I have installed the drivers for the Microsoft keyboard and when I select the device from USB & Bluetooth, I get a ghost mouse. I cannot see the cursor but when I hover over any icons, I can see a ghost mouse is over it.
