    Hi everyone,

    Has anyone experienced a situation where the text entry is disabled on the Microsoft Edge Search / URL and also the Windows "Ask me anything" search box? otherwise I am able to use Windows without a problem. If I launch IE I can edit/enter text in the url dialog. Its very strange. Refer to the picture thumbnails I cannot edit or enter text in the dialog boxes.

    I'm running Parallels Mac Pro edition version 12.2.0 with Windows 10 Home 1607 virtual image hosted on a Macbook Pro Retina on a Sierra OS.

    Curious, if you use On Screen Keyboard, can you enter text?
    I can type in the search box, but I can't press enter to have it commit. I can't use the Return key on the onscreen keyboard to commit the term either.

    Hi Guys, please follow the steps mentioned below:
    1. Navigate to the folder C:\Windows\System32
    2. Locate ctfmon (Application)
    3. Right-click > Send to > Desktop (Create shortcut)
    4. Open run > type ' shell:startup ' (without quotes)
    5. Drag & drop the ctfmon shortcut placed in the Desktop to the Startup folder.
    6. Restart Windows & observe if the issue re-appears.

    My issues was fixed by downloading a later version of the MS virtual machine.
