Adding Windows applications to Mac Launchpad

  • Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac Home Edition


In Parallels Desktop 10 you can add Windows apps to your Mac Launchpad. This could be extremely helpful when you run your virtual machine in Coherence view mode.

  1. Open your virtual machine's Configuration from Actions menu -> Configure... -> Options -> Applications
  2. Check the Add new applications to Launchpad checkbox.

Note: this will add only the new apps you install in your Windows virtual machine. If you would like to add the already existing Windows apps to Launchpad, follow the steps below:

  1. Start the Windows app you would like to add to the Launchpad
  2. Right-click on the app icon in the Dock and choose "Add to Launchpad"
