In the Advanced pane, you can configure the Parallels Workstation additional settings.
To edit these settings, do the following:
The SmartMouse option allows the mouse to move smoothly between the virtual machine and the host operating system. With this option enabled, Parallels Workstation automatically grabs the mouse input when you move the pointer to the virtual machine, and releases it when you move it back to the host OS.
Select Synchronize with host computer to synchronize the time settings of your virtual machine with those of the host computer.
If the time zone set in your virtual machine differs from that of the host computer, you can maintain this time difference by selecting Allow a different time than on host computer.
Copy & Paste
If you want to copy and paste data between the host and guest operating systems, select Share clipboard. If the data you copy and paste between the host OS 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.
