If that does not work try this:
Click anywhere on your Windows desktop when Parallels is running in full-screen mode.

Press the "Alt" and "Ctrl" keys on your keyboard at the same time and immediately let go. This will remove your mouse cursor from the Microsoft virtual machine and allow you to access the Parallels menu bar.

Open the "View" menu at the top of the screen and choose the "Window" option. The Microsoft virtual machine will now exit full-screen mode and be displayed in a small window instead.
