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.
