Parallels Quick Tip: Drag Modifier Keys

Posted on 2/26/2011 | Printable Version | Comments (0)

The default setting in Parallels makes one annoyance that is easily fixed, once you can find how to set it! When clicking and dragging files in windows, you can press shift, ctrl or alt to modify the action. Copy, Move, make a shortcut; each are indicated in the icon when you press the key while holding down the mouse button. But this functionality is gone when you're in Parallels...or is it?

A Quick Fix

  • Configure your virtual machine (in window mode, click Virtual Machine >> Configure in the menu bar)
  • Go to the Options tab
  • Select Advanced on the left
  • Check the box, Optimize modified keys for games
