I have a Windows VM running in Parallels and is working just fine. I have mapped Apple-
⌘ Cmd key to Windows- Alt and Apple- ⌥ Opt to Windows- ⊞ Win.
When I press
⌘ Cmd- Tab - even in full screen mode - I cycle through all Apps running in both Windows and MacOS. How do I get it to just be Windows?

To disable the OS X system keyboard shortcuts while the focus is on your VM, just change the setting under Shortcuts labelled "Send OS X system shortcuts" to Always. This will send all keystrokes
only to the VM when it has the focus.

This has moved again in Parallels 13. You can now find it by:
Clicking on the settings gear icon in the Control Center
Mouse & Keyboard entry
Select the maxOS System Shortcuts
Change the "Send MacOS system shortcuts" from Auto to Always
(if needed) Allow Parallel to control System Accessibility and enter in your password
