Modifier keys (Shift/Ctrl/Alt/Win) not working in Parallels

I found the command lines that fixed Parallels when not in "Coherence" mode.

defaults write com.microsoft.rdc.macos 'HID Host Hook.Allowed Sources' "synergy"
defaults write com.microsoft.rdc.macos 'HID Host Hook.Allowed Sources' "synergyc"

Has anyone found is a similar set of commands to fix Microsoft Remote Desktop?

What is worse than not being able to type your password? Not being able to switch volumes on a Windows server.

Try typing "f:" over an RDP session on a synergy client system. !!FAIL!!

For Synergy 2, the command is:

defaults write 'com.parallels.Parallels Desktop' 'HID Host Hook.Allowed Sources' "synergy-core"

Thanks to LiQing,   I found what works for me.

I am Win10(home pc) => Mac Catalina(work laptop) => Parallels Win10..   Using Synergy 1.11.1 

I tried the 2 following commands and they did not work.

  • defaults write com.microsoft.rdc.macos 'HID Host Hook.Allowed Sources' "synergy"
  • defaults write com.microsoft.rdc.macos 'HID Host Hook.Allowed Sources' "synergyc"

Then I came across LiQing's post.   he is using com.parallels.Parallels Desktop  and not 'com.microsoft.rdc.macos'.

Since I am using 1.11  i applied it to synergyc and then synergy.   however this still didnt work.

I decided to 'read' the 'com.parallels.Parallels Desktop' and grep for synergy.   It only saved 1 entry for this key.   and the  last one i used was just synergy.  so I applied it to synergyc again (i verified this is the process for my synergy client) and voila, it worked.

So in my case..  the following command worked :

defaults write 'com.parallels.Parallels Desktop' 'HID Host Hook.Allowed Sources' "synergyc"
