Windows adds transparent window, blocking Mac clicks

    Here's my setup:
    • macOS 10.11.6
    • Parallels 13.1.1 running Windows 10
    • Dual monitors, arranged vertically
    • Windows "all displays in full-screen" mode (distinct "Space" for Parallels and macOS)
    The issue: Frequently, I'll try to click something in my Mac space and nothing will happen. Then I notice the menu bar says Windows. If I drag the window out of the way, I notice it's just a full-screen frame with a transparent fill. To click something on the Mac in this mode, I need to select the Mac program from the dock. How can I prevent Windows from placing this invisible shield over my Mac desktop?

    Side note: Parallels often creates an empty black desktop space as well.
