Customize the Keyboard
Both Mac OS X and Windows provide extensive keyboard shortcuts. For example, in Mac OS X you can hold down the Command key and press Q (Command-Q) to quit the current application.
By default, Parallels Desktop maps common Mac OS X keyboard shortcut key combinations to the equivalent Windows key combinations. That way if you're used to, for example, pressing Command-C to copy text in Mac OS X, you don't have to switch to the Windows equivalent, Control-C.
You can also use and customize keyboard shortcuts for switching between Coherence, Full Screen, and Window view modes, and for showing and hiding Parallels Desktop.
Customize Keyboard Shortcuts
If you're using multiple operating systems with Parallels Desktop, you can create keyboard profiles for each OS.
Note: 1. Some key combinations can't be edited or deleted.
2. There are Mac shortcuts that do not have similar shortcuts in Windows, for example, you can use the F11 key or Fn+F11 combination to see your Mac OS desktop with Expose, but in Windows there are no keys or key combinations that enable you to perform the same action, because there is no Expose in Windows.
Enable or Disable Mac OS X System Shortcuts
By default, when a Windows program is active the customizable function keys (F1, F2, F3, and so on) continue to activate Mac OS X functions, such as adjusting the brightness or displaying the Dashboard.
