Startup and Shutdown Settings
Using the Startup and Shutdown Settings, you can define a number of parameters related to the procedures of starting and shutting down your virtual machine.
Starting the Virtual Machine Automatically
The Start automatically option defines the cases in which the virtual machine can be started automatically.
The Startup view option defines the mode in which the virtual machine will work after you select from the Parallels Virtual Machines list and start. If the Window, Full screen, Coherence, Crystal, or Modality option is selected, the virtual machine will automatically switch to the specified view mode. If the Same as last time option is selected, the virtual machine will start in the same mode that was applied to it before it was turned off.
Action on the Virtual Machine Shutdown
The On shutdown option defines the operation to be performed when you stop the virtual machine.
Action on Closing the Virtual Machine Window
The On window close option defines the operation to be performed when you close the virtual machine's window.
If you want to prevent Virtual Machine Configuration from further unauthorized changes, click the Lock icon at the bottom of the window. The next time someone wants to change the settings on any pane of Virtual Machine Configuration, an administrator's password will be required.
