    Mouse cursor is very small in Windows 10 guest OS running on Parallels Desktop 14 for Mac.
    Hardware -> Graphics -> Resolution -> 'Best for exteral displays'
    Guest OS (windows 10):
    Display -> Scale and layout -> Size of text -> 100%
    Display -> Scale and layout -> Resolution -> 1680 x 1050

    Hi!
    I think I have a similar problem to this one.
    My cursor is changing now and then to very big. Then I have to go to my cursor settings and set it to default again and then it is back to normal.
    Does anyone know how I can force my computer not to change it automatically now and then? My mouse driver is up to date.
    I'm on a Lenovo laptop with Windows 10.
    Thanks in advance!
    Cheers,
    Jens Jensen

    Dear Jens,
    You can check this forum for more info and if you didn't use Parallels Desktop for Windows, it will be great to submit bug with the Microsoft support Team.

    @Maria@Parallels seems to work now with external screen. On (retina) MacBook screen i have to scale 200% and set resolution on 3840x2400 to work properly (on 15" retina screen). Is this normal behaviour?

    Do you need to set it up every time when you use VM?
    After every restart?
