I am using a mac and I use parallels as i need to use windows as well. One thing that keeps bugging me is that on windows i use Control+C and on mountain lion i have to use Command+C.

Is there anyway to have Control+C work on mountain lion? Is there way to change the shortcuts?

If you want the copy shortcut to be command-C, map the physical alt key to control in Windows using https://stackoverflow.com/questions/229633/how-to-globally-map-altgr-key-to-alt-key#396859.

If you want the copy shortcut to be control-C, change the Control key to be the Command key in OS X in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Modifier Keys..., and then change the Windows key using the same method as above.
