Single Application Mode

Single Application Mode is a special Parallels Desktop deployment option that allows you to largely obscure Parallels Desktop and Windows on a Mac, making Windows applications appear native to macOS. This mode is designed for system administrators who want Mac users in their organization to run one or more Windows applications while minimizing their interaction with Windows or Parallels Desktop.

To make Parallels Desktop run in Single Application Mode, you need to deploy it on Mac computers via the autodeploy package. This includes preparing the autodeploy package in a special way and then either deploying it on Mac computers using Mac management tools or running it manually on a Mac.

For more information about how to use the autodeploy package and how to deploy Parallels Desktop in Single Application Mode, please see the following sections of this guide:
