    I'm using Windows 11 arm on an m1 max MacBook Pro on the latest Parallels 18, and most everything seems to be running fine. However, I can't seem to force a 16x9 resolution. I can only seem to select many variations of 16x10 resolutions (which is the aspect ratio of the macbook's screen). The only workaround I've found is to go into windowed mode and manually resize the window. It will change it to pretty much any resolution, but you have to keep resizing it to get to the exact one you want.

    Is there a way to actually get something like 16x9, standard old 1920x1080? In either fullscreen or windowed mode? Seem like basic functionality, maybe I'm missing something.

    Did you try to switch between any of the other options in settings of VM? Under configuration and Hardware tab there is Graphics option, where you can choose between 3 different resolution settings:
    - Best for Retina display (default)
    - Scaled
    - Best for external displays
