If you’re running Windows 10 on Parallels, there are a few things you can do to make the most out of your virtual machine. Here are some tips:
1. Add more CPU cores and more RAM. Windows 10 is a resource-intensive operating system, so you’ll want to make sure your virtual machine has plenty of processing power and memory.
2. Use a solid-state drive (SSD) for your virtual machine’s hard drive. Windows 10 will run much faster on an SSD than on a traditional hard drive, so this is a great way to speed up your VM.
3. Turn off unused features and services. Windows 10 comes with a lot of features and services that you may not need or want, so it’s a good idea to disable them to free up resources for other things.
4. Disable unnecessary startup programs. Many programs will automatically start when you boot up Windows, and some of them you may not even need. You can disable them in the Task Manager or in the Startup tab in the System Configuration tool.
5. Use battery saver mode when possible. This will help extend the life of your laptop battery by reducing the amount of power used by your virtual machine.
