What’s New in Parallels Toolbox 3.0 for Mac and Windows

Whether you’re a PC or Mac® user, you can get everyday tasks done easily with just a single click with Parallels® Toolbox. Everyone from computer newbies to business pros can save time and effort with this well-designed set of tools. Since we released Parallels Toolbox in 2016, we’ve published more than 30 tools. Download video, Record Screen, Clean Drive, Free Memory, Make GIF, and more have made our customers very happy.

Today, we’re releasing three new tools for both Parallels Toolbox for Mac and Parallels Toolbox for Windows. We’re very proud to introduce these—and also some features that make working on your PC or Mac even easier.

New Tools for Parallels Toolbox for Mac

1. World Time

This tool shows you the local time in cities located in different time zones. Moscow, Tokyo, London, Seattle—get all the time zones you need in one glance. There are thousands of locations around the globe, time offset information, and daytime and nighttime info. This is all conveniently located right in the Mac menu bar for quick and easy access.

2. Uninstall Apps

Want to remove applications and their files from your Mac? “Uninstall Apps” scans the hard drive and shows applications and all their files. The tool can also show and remove leftover files related to applications that have already been uninstalled.

3. Hidden Files

Use this tool to either show or conceal hidden files and folders. To show hidden files, click the tool’s icon. To conceal hidden files, just click it again.


Anything else?

Yes! We also updated a couple existing tools and added some new features.

New Tools for Parallels Toolbox for Windows

1. Find Duplicates

You just downloaded a file and saved it to a different location but didn’t delete it out of the download folder…does this situation feel familiar? With “Find Duplicates,” you can scan different folders for duplicate files and free up a lot of space by not saving the same document more than once. Launch the tool and select the directory you want to check. Once the scanning is complete, you can preview the detected files and choose which duplicates to keep and which to delete. Deleted files are moved to the Recycle Bin.

2. Sleep Timer

Count down from the specified time to zero and then either send the computer to sleep or shut it down. To begin the countdown, select an action, set the time and click “Start.” Even if you close the tool, the countdown continues, and the action is performed when the timer reaches zero. One minute before the planned action, you’ll get an additional notification.

3. Resize Images

What’s the easiest way to quickly resize an image? With “Resize Images,” you can resize images and also convert them to a different format. Drag a source image (or several images at once) to the tool’s window, then specify the output dimensions and format in preferences.


Anything else?

We also updated some existing tools in the Windows version, plus added some new features.
