    Macos Sierra, Parrallels Desktop & Windows 10

    I cannot get to my main screen the only screen that I can get to is the Windows screen. How can I get to the main screen? When I said the main screen I mean the one with the folders and other stuff on it.

    Hello, do you mean your Windows isn't booting to the desktop correctly? I don't know what
    the main screen I mean the one with the folders and other stuff on it
    is for sure.

    Some people have nothing on their desktop - just a picture, and a taskbar- others have a terribly cluttered desktop..

    If so, please could you say
    - which build of Windows you have (Anniversary/ 14393 / 1607 version) or the current Creator's build (a recent major upgrade)
    - what you think happened before this occurred
    - whether you see a lock screen (picture) and then when you click on that (e.g.), a login prompt
    - where the MAC OS fits into this scenario

    Please also complete your specs (see mine for comparison). We don't know if yours is a desktop or laptop, what disks you have, whether you use Windows Home or Pro...

    Please give us more information.
    Your title sounds like you are running Windows 10 on a Mac running OSX Sierra using Parallels program?.
    What Main Screen are you talking about? Windows 10? Or Mac OSX Sierra?
