Fast, Powerful and Easy

Run thousands of Windows apps like Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, Access, Quicken, QuickBooks, Visual Studio, even graphic intensive games and CAD programs without compromising on performance or rebooting.

Use Windows, side-by-side, with macOS on your MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, iMac Pro, Mac mini or Mac Pro—no restarting required. Share files and folders, copy and paste images and text, and drag and drop files and content between Mac and Windows applications.

Parallels Desktop automatically detects what you need to get started so you can get up and running within minutes! If you need Windows, you’ll be prompted to download and install Windows 11 or use your Boot Camp installation if you have an Intel-based Mac. You may also migrate your Windows PC* or Linux, like Ubuntu (Intel-based Mac computers only).

Graphic and resource-hungry Windows applications run effortlessly without slowing down your Mac. Run applications such as Microsoft Office, Visual Studio, SQL Server, PowerBI, AutoCAD, MetaTrader, and thousands more. Play your favorite classic Windows-only games on a Mac.

Make Windows invisible while still using its applications in Coherence™ Mode, or if you’re new to Mac, you can set Windows to occupy your entire screen, so it looks just like it would if you were using a Windows PC.
