Can I group VMs in the Control Center View?

    I have a demonstration and test environment consisting of four VMs. I also have a dozen other VMs that I use regularly.

    I'm able to re-arrange them in whatever order I want but would prefer to put those four, or others, in their own VM Group. The long last of VMs is a PIA to scroll through and of course will only get longer as I create new environments.

    I'm using the Compact View option but would still prefer to put my related VMs in their own groups. I can't find a way to do this and thinking that maybe it's a feature request others have considered. What say ye?

    Hello @ChrisP6 ,
    This feature is not available in Parallels Desktop. We will take your take your feedback and share it with our dev team. Thank you for sharing this suggestion.

    I'd be interested in this, too. I'm in the same boat as ChrisP6. I have many VMs and the list continues to grow as new projects develop. Being able to group VMs would seem to be a standard requirement.

    Hi @GlennS4 , as of now a list of Parallels virtual machines in Parallels Desktop Control Center cannot be re-ordered manually . However we will share this feedback to our development team.

    Thanks for the quick response, Arun.
    I assume you meant to say the list of Parallels VM can only be re-ordered manually. What I'd like to see is the ability to organize VMs into groups that could be collapsed in the Control Center.

    As of now, it is not possible to group the list of virtual machines displayed in control center menu. However, you can post your request in features and suggestions so that it will be considered for future development.

    I don't know how old this post is but we cannot be the only ones who desperately need to be able to group VMs in control centre? I'd like to revive this thread. I have 20 VMs that I regularly use. I absolutely hate scrolling up and down to find what I need. Please please give us the ability to group VMs in control centre! I know I can already manually sort them but this is not what I'm asking. I need to group them. It is 2020 and I am using the very latest Paralles version on my Mac.
