- How to prevent virtual machine automatic start?
- I use option Start virtual machine automatically when Parallels Desktop opens ( Virtual machine configuration->Options -> Startup and Shutdown ), but sometimes I need to start only Parallels Desktop without launching the virtual machine.
If you Have Parallels Desktop in the Dock:
- Right-click on Parallels Desktop in the Dock.
- Hold down "cmd" key and double-click the virtual machine.
- Locate the virtual machine icon on your Desktop.
- Hold down "cmd" key and click on it.
