CMD+A not working in Windows

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac Standard Edition

Symptoms

I am using French keyboard layuot in Windows. II have a shortcut not working, when I hit in Windows CMD+A it's not doing Ctrl+Abut Alt+F4 quitting the soft even the shortcut is good in the preferences.

Cause

the position of keys on French Apple keyboard is different. 'A' located on 'Q' position. That is why Explorer keeps closing everytime - virtual machine receives CMD+Q (Quit command).

Resolution

  1. Go to Parallels Desktop > Preferences > System Shortcuts > Select your VM
  2. Manually add the shortcut as on attached screenshot (From CMD+Q To Ctrl+Q)
