If an update for your version of Parallels Desktop is available, you will have the option to download and install it.
You can also configure Parallels Desktop to check for updates automatically:
- Go to Parallels Desktop menu -> Preferences -> General
Verify that the "Download updates automatically" check-box is checked
From the Check for Updates drop-down list choose how often would you like Parallels Desktop to check for updates.
