Fix Parallels Desktop on Mac OSX Lion

Parallels Desktop

Most of the Parallels Desktop 6 users are experiencing an issue not finding the virtual machine windows after upgrading to Mac OSX Lion. This might be caused by the Desktop (inwhich Parallels to run on) being set to None during upgrade. Mission Control to blame? But this can be fixed very easily. Follow these steps,

  1. Create a Dock Icon for Parallels Desktop if not
  2. Launch Parallels Desktop
  3. Right click the Parallels Dock Icon and go to Options. Then set Assign To to This Desktop.
  4. Done.

According to Parallels FAQ, there is one more workaround to fix this issue,

  1. Delete all the spaces except the default one
  2. Reboot and restart Parallels

I hope this will be helpful for those struggling to get around this issue.
