How to Find Parallel Files on a Mac


The Parallels virtual desktop application allows you install a Windows operating system on your Mac computer and launch the operating system in a virtual desktop window. Since the Parallels application does not create a separate boot partition, the files for the Parallels application are stored on the OS X partition and can be accessed in the OS X Finder. If you want to find the Parallels application files on a Mac computer, you can do so in a few simple steps.

  • Click the "Finder" icon in the computer's dock to launch the Finder window.

  • Click the "Documents" icon beneath the "Places" heading to view the computer's documents.

  • Click the "Parallels" folder, followed by the folder whose title reflects the name of the Windows operating system you use with Parallels. For example, a computer that uses Windows 7 with Parallels would have a folder titled "Microsoft Windows 7". The Parallels files for the Windows operating system will be located in this folder.
