Important: This operation is irreversible. The virtual machine will be deleted, and there is no way to restore it.
Follow these steps to delete/uninstall your virtual machine:
Launch Parallels Desktop, but do not start your virtual machine.
In Parallels Desktop 10:
- Activate the Control Center.
- Right-click on your virtual machine and select "Remove".
In Parallels Desktop 9 and earlier:
- Activate the Virtual Machines list.
- Right-click on your virtual machine in the list and select "Remove".
Choose "Keep files" if you wish to access to the files saved in this virtual machine later. The virtual machine will be removed from the Virtual Machine list but it will remain in its original location.
Choose “Move to Trash” if you do not need any data located on this virtual machine and want to remove the VM completely.
Note: If you do not have Parallels Desktop for Mac installed, search for the .pvm file in /Users/username/Documents/Parallels/, /Users/Shared/Parallels/, or /Users/username/Library/Parallels. Then move it to the Trash. If you need a hand finding the virtual machine on your Mac, type “.pvm” into the Spotlight search bar.
