In this book, virtualization expert Joe Kissell explains how beginners can set up a virtual machine to run Windows or another operating system, share files with a virtual machine, and switch smoothly between virtualized apps and Mac apps. For those who are familiar with virtualization in general and previous versions of Parallels Desktop, he explores the many settings you can tweak for specific situations, to increase performance, or to enhance security. Joe also discusses connecting peripherals to your virtual machine and looks at snapshots, backups, malware prevention, troubleshooting, and more!
