Launching Published Resources (Modern Interface)

After you connect to Parallels RAS, Parallels Client is populated with published folders. When you select a folder, the resources that it contains are displayed. If your administrator hasn't published any folders, then the available resources are displayed when you select the connection itself.

To launch a resource, double-click it. The resource will open on your Windows desktop. You can also open a resource by right-clicking it and then selecting Open in the context menu. Please note that there could be a slight delay before the application opens. If during this delay you double-click the resource again, Parallels Client will ignore it (i.e. the application will not be launched twice).


The Favorites tab allows you to quickly access frequently used applications.

To add an item to the Favorites tab:

Right-click the item you want to add and select Add to Favorites from the context menu or click on the star icon near the item.

To delete an item from the Favorites tab:

Right-click the item you want to remove and select Remove from Favorites from the context menu or click on the star icon near the item.


The two-tier toolbar is displayed at the top of the main Parallels Client window. Using the toolbar items you can:

  • Switch between RAS connections and RDP connections.

  • Opening the Manage connections menu (see below).
  • Change the published resources view to display resources as icons or as a list.
