Follow these steps to delete your virtual machine:
Launch Parallels Desktop, but do not start your virtual machine.
In Parallels Desktop 10:
- Activate the Control Center (click on Window from the application menu, then click on Control Center).
Right-click on your virtual machine and select Remove.
In Parallels Desktop 9 and earlier:
- Activate the Virtual Machine list (lick on Window from the application menu, then select Virtual Machines List).
Right-click on your virtual machine in the list and select Remove.
Choose Keep files, if you wish to access the files in this virtual machine later. The virtual machine will be removed from the list, but it will remain in its original location.
Choose Move to Trash, if you do not need any data from this virtual machine and want to remove it 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 in the Spotlight search bar.
