Download Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac
Parallels, the trusted virtualization expert of over 5 million users, offers its latest product that supports Windows 10 and El Capitan. With Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac, Mac users can now be able to do more with their Mac programs while running Windows applications at the same time; clearly, a best of both worlds scenario for most Mac users.
Integration and Virtual Assistance via Cortana
Parallels Desktop 11 is a competitive virtualization solution that enables users to run different operating systems such as Microsoft 10 and Linux on Mac computers without the need to reboot. The result is the flawless integration between the sophistication of Mac and the straightforward functionality of Windows as users can then switch between app to app with ease. It also enhances the Mac’s functionality as there are several functions that are available on Windows but not on Mac; such as Cortana, a voice-controlled virtual assistant that is often compared to Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant that is unfortunately only available on iOS devices like iPhone and iPad. By having Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac on computers, Mac users can then maximize access Cortana, the virtual assistant while they are working on multiple tasks.
Each version of Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac enables users to access virtual machines with additional processing power, ensuring then that their Mac computers can handle even the most demanding tasks. For instance, the basic version comes with an 8GB of virtual RAM and 4 virtual CPUs per virtual machine, allowing users the ability to run several applications simultaneously without compromising their machine’s performance. It also enables users to drag and drop files between the two operating systems, launch Windows applications straight from the Dock, or even apply Mac OS parental control to the additional Windows apps, among others.
Clearly this is an ideal virtualization solution for those who want to do more things with their Mac devices.
