APPLIES TO:

Question

When Parallels Desktop.app is unchecked in System Preferences ► Security & Privacy ► Privacy ► Accessibility, I get a pop-up notification message whenever I start a macOS virtual machine:

   "Parallels Desktop.app would like to control this computer using accessibility features" 

I do not want to grant Parallels Desktop with control over accessibility features and doesn't want this message to appear.
