In the Advanced pane, you can configure the Parallels Desktop additional settings.
To edit these settings, do the following:
The SmartMouse option allows the mouse to move smoothly between the virtual machine and your Mac. With this option enabled, Parallels Desktop automatically grabs the mouse input when you move the pointer to the virtual machine, and releases it when you move it back to Mac OS.
Modifier Keys Optimization
Select the Optimize modifier keys for games option if you actively use modifier keys (Alt, Ctrl, Shift) in action games. If you select this option, signals from these keys will be processed faster.
Enable the Apple Remote option to use the Apple Remote to control some Windows applications.
For detailed information on using Apple Remote, see Using Apple Remote.
Select the Synchronize with Mac option to synchronize the time settings of your virtual machine with those of your Mac.
If the time zone set in your virtual machine differs from that of your Mac, you can maintain this time difference by selecting the Allow a different time than on Mac option.
Copy & Paste
If you want to copy and paste data between the host and guest operating systems, select Share Mac clipboard. If the data you copy and paste between Mac OS X and your virtual machine is text and you want to preserve text formatting, select Preserve text formatting.
Note: This functionality is available only for virtual machines with Parallels Tools installed.
If you want to prevent Virtual Machine Configuration from unauthorized changes, click the Lock icon at the bottom of the window. The next time someone wants to change the settings in any pane of Virtual Machine Configuration, an administrator's password will be required.
