Parallels: Can't exit frigging fullscreen mode.

hello everyone;

I switched to fullscreen mode on parallels but the goddamn thing can't exit from stupid fullscreen BS. alt + return doesn't work.

Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure it's option(alt)+command+return. Maybe that's what you meant. If that doesn't work just restart.

I got the same!!!

Have no idea... I tried all key combo's, and restarted....
I have used Parallels since the first beta release, and this latest version (3810) is the first time I ever encountered this....
My guest OSes are Windows 2003 Server, and Mac OS X Server 10.5.6.

EDIT: This is on a MacBook Pro Unibody (Mac OS X 10.5.6)
My Mac Pro (Mac OS X 10.5.6) still does it well running Windows XP SP3.... the key-cpmbo = COMMAND - ALT - ENTER

Frightfully sorry!

Crap... I got it mixed up...
On my MacBook Pro (Unibody) I had build 3540 installed.... Now I updated to 3180 and it seems to be working well.


I already had 3810 installed on my Mac Pro, so I can't comment on that anymore.

old tip, but shows up in Google whenever I need a reminder. Figured I'd say thanks.

Option+Command+F worked for me.

What about in coherence mode? All I can see is full screen no matter what I do. Keyboard shortcuts do nothing.....
