Parallels Desktop 17 Pro: Use Windows 10 and 11 apps on Mac

Parallels Desktop 17 Pro allows you to use Windows 11 and 10 on your Mac. The Mac does not have to be restarted for this. This is helpful for all users who want to use Windows apps in their original version, but don't want to switch computers to do so. For example, Microsoft Office applications can be used through Parallels exactly as their developers intended.

  • compatible with Macs with Apple processors
  • Bootcamp is unnecessary
  • Windows 10 and 11 can be used as full versions
  • Windows apps, such as those from Microsoft Office, appear as their own icons in the Dock
  • Parallels offers additional tools
  • Resources can be allocated to achieve better performance
  • Developing Windows apps on the Mac

Easy to understand explanation: How Parallels Desktop 17 Pro works

Parallels is a so-called virtualization solution. This means it fictitiously sets up a second computer on the Mac using the identical hardware. This is equipped with either Windows 11 or 10. This virtual machine can be controlled via the actual operating system Mac OS. Here it appears as a separate app. Unlike Bootcamp, the computer does not have to be restarted with a different boot volume to get access to Windows 10 or 11. In everyday use, the Microsoft operating system is nothing more than an ordinary app.

Using Parallels Desktop 17 Pro: Apps appear directly in the Dock

You can access Windows 11 or 10 at any time, for example, if you want to use Microsoft Office in its original form. Parallels mirrors your Mac desktop. Everything that you had stored there can be found here again. However, it is not necessary in every case: Parallels displays Mac apps in the Dock for which it has the original version - including Microsoft Office applications. These apps are indicated by two red dashes. Direct access to Windows 10 or 11 therefore makes sense, especially if you want to use programs or databases that require the Microsoft operating system.

The special features of the Pro version of Parallels Desktop 17

The Pro version is not limited to virtualizing Windows and, for example, the Microsoft Office apps. It goes well beyond this capability of the standard edition of Parallels. For example, you can also develop and test Windows apps as well as cross-platform apps directly on the Mac. The same applies to websites that are to be played out in the popular browsers. Tools such as CLI, minikube, Jenkins, SDK and Vagrant also allow the automation of workflows.

The Pro version also supports nested virtualization. You can use Hyper-V and other virtual machines within the Parallels solution. This is useful for working with containers or if you also want to run Linux. Parallels 17 Pro also provides an isolated environment for software testing.

Optimized for Macs with Apple processors: Parallels 17 Pro as a replacement for Bootcamp

With the M1 Macs, Apple said goodbye to Intel processors. The chips used are from their own development. Bootcamp is therefore no longer an option for using Windows 11 or 10 or the Microsoft Office apps in the original version on the Mac. An Intel processor is mandatory for this. Since Parallels Desktop 17 has been optimized for the Apple chips, this problem does not exist with this solution. It can therefore serve as a replacement. Of course, Parallels also works excellently with the older Intel Macs.

Those who need Windows 10 or 11 as well as Microsoft Office on the Mac and want to implement demanding work flows will make the right decision with Parallels 17 Pro. See for yourself!

How do our prices come about?

The goods offered by us are activation keys which were originally delivered by the respective owners to a first purchaser. This person paid the corresponding remuneration to the owner and thus received activatable product keys, the use of which is not subject to any time limit. We make use of our right and buy up a large number of non-activated keys from corresponding distributors.

This procedure enables us to offer our products at comparatively lower prices. 

Furthermore, the virtual inventory management also contributes to this, which is responsible for the elimination of delivery and storage fees, as well as the elimination of high personnel fees.

Accordingly, one should keep in mind that our earnings are far from being equal to those of the original owners. Rather, our focus is on satisfying our customers with the best possible price-performance ratio in order to gain their trust and to be able to enjoy a steadily growing clientele in the future. Thousands of customers have already been convinced by our quality - become one of them!
