Where is the 'Parallels  Desktop menubar' ? it is not on OSX 10.9.4 or [Parallels] Windows 8.1 taskbar.
"Go to the Parallels Desktop menubar, click Window and then choose Virtual Machines List" - Where is it?
"The Parallels Desktop menus contain all the controls available for Parallels Desktop and its virtual machines. The menus are displayed on the Mac OS X menubar." - Where?
There are Windows 8.1 & Outlook OSX icons with Parallels [II] mark, but no 'Parallels  Desktop menubar'.
Parallels 9 is running; Apple bar at top or WIN search for 'Parallels' are no help;
