Optimizing Your Virtual Machine for Software Development

When creating a virtual machine in Parallels Desktop Pro or Business Edition, the setup process includes a page where you can choose the primary use case, like software development or software testing.

However, you can later change the optimization profile of an already existing virtual machine by doing the following:

  1. Start Parallels Desktop.

  2. In Control Center, right-click the virtual machine (it must be shut down) and choose Configure.

  3. On the General tab, click Change.

  4. Select the profile that best fits your needs.
