"Shift" not functioning in Parallels

10 posts in this topic

I control my Mac from my Windows 10 keyboard. Everything works fine UNTIL I launch a Parallels guest. Then SHIFT stops working, only inside of Parallels. Elsewhere on the Mac, no issues.

 

Anyone else seen this?

This has been on going for ages and is very, very frustrating :(

I really hope this is fixed soon.

Howdy!

I am experiencing the same issue as above (Windows server, Mac client, Parallels VM, and shift/alt/ctrl/Windows key don't work in the VM). I'm looking for a workaround or a solution. Unfortunately I have a keyboard plugged into the Mac for when I need to type a special character. Bummer.

Although you can get around this issue by using Caps-Lock, it only helps typing uppercase letters. you will still not be able to type @#$%^&*()_+ etc.

Result is that you cannot easily type in an email address...

Yes I can confirm that this is the case on 1.8.8 stable with Linux Server and Mac Client.. and Parallels on the Mac client! used to work around 1.8.4 i think..
