“It’s always been astonishing that it’s faster to start up a Parallels PC than a real one. On my MacBook Air, I’m up and running in Windows six seconds after I double-click the Parallels icon.”David Pogue, The New York Times
“Of all the ways to run Windows on a Mac, Parallels Desktop is my favorite because it just works. It's fast, it's reliable, and there's no need to futz about with confusing setting or convoluted setup processes.”Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, ZDNet
“Unlike Apple’s Boot Camp, Parallels lets you run both operating systems at the same time.”Larry Magid, Forbes
”Parallels Desktop is the easiest, fastest, and most tightly integrated app for running Windows apps or the Windows desktop in Apple OS X.”Edward Mendelson, PCMag.com
“The latest version of Parallels, the popular Windows virtualization tool for Mac OS X, almost feels like its trolling Apple.”Engadget
Improved display driver in Parallels Desktop 17 delivers much smoother Windows UI responsiveness and synchronized video playback. In addition to performance improvements, the new driver boosts frame rate in many Windows games for a greater gaming experience and provides better synchronization with the Mac display.
In Windows 10, system screens such as shut-downs, updates and sign-ins used to occupy the complete Mac desktop, overlapping all open apps. In Parallels Desktop 17, all such screens are now turned into resizable macOS windows with title bar, so you can stay focused on the Mac workflow.
Parallels Desktop 17 is optimized for the latest macOS 12 Monterey with improved Drag-and-Drop that enables you to easily drop text and images to macOS Monterey Quick Note from Windows applications. Easily install macOS Monterey to a virtual machine via Parallels Desktop 17 Installation Assistant1. Parallels Desktop continues to stay up to date so you can keep working without interruption—even when a new macOS, Windows or Linux release pops up.
