    Same here. Anytime I open an app on Windows 10 within coherence mode, it opens a new windows, called Windows Shell Experience Host. Any fixes?

    Two windows are actually created, the Windows Shell Experience Host is one and Cortana is the other. This happens mostly when a new app is opened or a submenu triggered.

    Apparently WSHE still opens but a new window appears as well upon the first launching of parallels it is called Settings [1].
    Cortana appears if the cursor hovers too long on the tiles.
    Although WSHE and Cortana can be closed, Settings [1] remains open regardless of trials.

    Why isn't Parallels responding? When can we expect a fix?

    I have the "Disk Cleanup" running and in addition to the windows mentioned above, I have a dock icon for "Windows Shell Common DLL" open. I suspect when the cleanup is done that this dock icon will go away....

    ...and it's gone now that that task has completed.

    Parallels is really taking a really a long time to fix this issue. i did not buy Parallels to run Windows in Full Screen mode (as suggested), for that i could have bought another solution. I did buy it so I could use the extensively promoted Coherence Mode that simply does not work with Windows 10. Either fix, provide a due date or attest the incapacity to solve it thus removing the Coherence from the current propaganda and refund us that bought the solution.

    [Update] this stops the start menu, and you can't launch Edge. The VM responds to Actions but you'll never see the start menu. I use one application and quit, so this is still good for me. Hopefully it's a starting place for someone smarter.
    I found a way to forever kill the 'Windows Shell Experience Host' 1. Stop VM. 2. Mount your Windows disk without starting Windows. 3. Rename

    1. Shut down your VM
    2. Mount your Windows disk by going to your Documents/Parallels folder, secondary clicking on the Windows.pvm and choose to open with Parallels Mounter. (further directions: http://download.parallels.com/desktop/v6/docs/en/Parallels_Desktop_Users_Guide/27290.htm)
    3. Navigate on the disk/drive you just mounted using Finder go to /Volumes/C/Windows/SystemApps/ and select the folder ShellExperienceHost_something within that folder rename the file ShellExperienceHost.exe . I chose to rename it ShellExperienceHostBad.exe (Remember to have your VM completely shut down before you rename or you will not have permission, if it is only suspended you will need to force quit)
    When Windows starts, it cannot find it anymore.

    Aside from adding a one off exception from seeing this and Cortana in the dock as icons, I don't know how they'll fix this.
