Whether you need to run Windows programs that don’t have Mac versions, or you are making the switch from PC to Mac and
need to transfer your data, Parallels Desktop has you covered.
Use your macOS and Windows OS, side-by-side, without ever having to pause productivity to reboot or to connect to a server. Share files and folders seamlessly between applications with easy drag and drop or copy and paste functionality. Leverage macOS QuickLook to quickly preview most file types from within File Explorer and tap into Dictionary to look up words or add words fast.

Streamline workflows and reduce IT overheads
