New Tools in Parallels Toolbox 4
Parallels Toolbox is a comprehensive package solution that includes utilities to help Windows and Mac users save time. It offers useful, click-to-use tools to make it easier to monitor your computer’s health, convenience, and performance. The following new Parallels Toolbox 4 tools have been added to a collection of over 30 tools.
BREAK TIME (Windows and Mac). To protect yourself from fatigue and increase your productivity, schedule breaks and set up automatic reminders so you don’t forget to take a break. In the program settings, you can specify how often you need a break, as well as set its duration. When it’s time for a break, you will be reminded accordingly. The break time is considered the period during which you are not using your computer keyboard and mouse. Watch this video demonstrating the Break Time tool.
UNIT OF MEASUREMENT CONVERTER (Windows and Mac). To convert units of measure and currency, you can simply enter a value (for example, “73 F”) to see the available conversion results, which will be displayed immediately after you complete your query. Watch this video demonstrating the Unit Converter tool.
ADVANCED SEARCH (Windows and Mac). Find the tool you need quickly using the Advanced Search tool, which supports hundreds of additional keywords. The tool is available in the upper left corner of the Parallels Toolbox menu.
TOP WINDOW (Windows). Dock the window of the app you use most often on top of other open apps for instant access at all times and for increased productivity. Most Windows applications do not have the ability to dock on top of other windows — that is, until today. Just open the Window Top tool in Parallels Toolbox and select the window you want. It will always be displayed on top of other windows for instant access to it.
WINDOW CONTROLLER (Mac). The Window Manager tool lets you quickly and easily adjust the preset size and position of the application window on your Mac. Just drag the window to the edge of the screen and it will automatically resize to fit half of the screen, a third or a quarter. Watch this video demonstrating the Window Manager tool.
SHOW DESKTOP (Mac). Clean up your work area with one click! Customize the display of the desktop using the “Hide Applications” or “Close Applications” command. Activating the Show Desktop tool minimizes all open windows or exits all applications visible in the Mac Dock. For quick access to a hidden application, simply select it in the Mac Dock. Watch this video demonstrating the Desktop command.
CLOSE APPS (Windows). Clean your desktop instantly by closing all applications and windows with one click, instead of wasting time manually closing each one. The tool’s settings allow users to close, minimize, hide, or force quit the application. Please note that if you force quit the application, all unsaved data will be lost.
The most popular Parallels Toolbox tools are available with one click: Download Video, Save Energy, Clipboard History, Clean Up Disk, Free Up Memory, Presentation Mode, Freeze Area, Hide Desktop Table, Checkout, Hidden Files, Remove Applications, and more.
