    Select Toolbox icon in the macOS menubar, find and click Presentation Mode icon. Or run Presentation Mode app via macOS Spotlight. Whatever is easier for you.
    This will work as On/Off switch.

    Hello,
    check that the tool 'Hide Desktop Files' are also switched off.
    For additional information please generate Technical Report and post its ID here (https://kb.parallels.com/en/124107).

    I figured it out. Had to remove the external display and restart, then add back display to get the "do you want to enable" message.

    Also in this situation. I turned on presentation mode in my MacBook Pro and now can't get out of it. I have tried the advice given above. I have checked the display settings in System Preferences and there isn't anything about Parallels display mode I can turn off. If I just uninstall Toolbox will I get my proper display back?

    Hello,
    to clear the situation - are you unable to turn off Presentation Mode or do you still have invisible files on Desktop after switching Presentation Mode off?
