Parallels 10 with Retina Display

I was setting up my new macbook pro for development, essentially installing windows 8.1. Installing parallels 10 was easy and it was even more rewarding as the price dropped to 26.99 £ at PC World recently which made me take the plunge (previously I had Windows installed on macbook as a separate OS using bootcamp).

Only tricky issue I came across was the blurry fonts/graphics and which didn’t go away by scaling the resolution (leave the resolution to retina). Eventually, I realised this can be fixed by changing the “Change the size of all items” settings to Extra Large as depicted in the screenshot below and that’s it really.
