You connected to you Mac or Windows computer with Parallels Access but you cannot see the Desktop, the Apple menu bar, the Dock or the Windows Taskbar.


Parallels Access displays a single application at a time as if it were an app designed for your mobile device. System-level items like the Apple menu, the OS X Dock, and the Windows Taskbar are not shown.

To switch to the Desktop mode tap the Settings (cogwheel) icon in the right toolbar and tap Desktop Mode
