Parallels has two modes: Coherence mode allows you to hide the Windows interface while continuing to use Windows apps from your macOS desktop. The default mode makes the Windows interface fit the entire screen, so it feels like you’re using a PC. You can change screen resolution and display scaling settings. Merge two workbooks in excel. It'll support multiple monitors. Apps that depend on more advanced graphics capabilities, like CAD apps, will work. So that tells us a lot, actually.

I've done this before and can confirm that it's awesome.
I can also confirm this to be an awesome set up. I have a 20' iMac on the right and an 20' dell widescreen monitor on the left. The monitor on the left is running full screen mode Windows XP in Parallels. And I actually don't have a problem with Zooming on either OS.
Awesome setup! Highly recommended.
I use virtuedesktops, and run parallels fullscreen in a seperate virtual desktop.
It's great, and confuses people (imagine OS/2 running on an MBP?) :) It's also got cool transitions.
what key sequence do you use to switch? the guest OS traps all that I've used.
Mind the gap..
Instead of using a keyboard trigger you have to use a mouse trigger. I am using the left and right borders to switch between Win and Mac. You can also mix keyboard and mouse triggers, but the keyboard triggers will only work in the Mac environment.
I've the best experience with the mouse triggers. I use double-click right/left monitor border.
I also modified other keyboard triggers, e.g. for the virtuedesktop pager, some have covered windows modifiers (shift+tab)..
You have OS/2 running in Parallels? Dang, I'm jealous.
I wonder if my Warp4 CDs would work.. hmm.. how to boot the thing without a floppy drive?
I'd love to kick around with OS/2 again.. =)
Parallels For Mac
I use dual screens AND virtuedesktops! haha ok, I admit it's a little much, but i have mail/news reader on the first desktop (monitor 1/2) then on the second set of desktops i have all my web stuff, dreamweaver on one monitor, firefox/safari on the second. You should also run Parallels in coherence mode on the second monitor, because then you can just put the menubar at the top/bottom of the screen and have IE floating in the screen right next to safari and all that. it's absolutely amazing. having 2 gigs of ram also helps A LOT.
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
Parallels For Mac Dual Display
Yeah, Coherence is cool. If only the betas didn't kill shared networking. :-(
I want to use two external monitors with my Powerbook. I know I can do it with my PowerMac but is it possible to do this with macbook or powerbook? I don't want to use the screen on the laptop. Ideally I'd like to dock my laptop and use two external monitors with it.
