    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.... :confused:
    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... :eek:
    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.

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