Fixing Parallels Desktop Start menu and Spotlight Clash

Parallels Desktop crystal mode is awesome.  When combined with the “Mac look” option, you don’t even know you’re in Windows…

The only issue I ran into is that when you hit CMD+Space for Spotlight, the Windows Start menu pops up and makes Spotlight disappear.  The fix was easy enough:

  1. Exit crystal mode
  2. Go to Parallels Preferences menu
  3. Under the Keyboard & Mouse tab, create two shortcuts
    1. Change the Cmd -> Win shortcut to whatever you want to open the Windows Start menu (you can see I set it to Ctrl+Space above, in the spirit of Spotlight)
    2. Create a dummy Cmd shortcut to Ctrl (basically to have it od nothing in Windows).  This will just have Parallels forward the Cmd to the Mac side and open Spotlight.
