    I keep finding files such as MP4, CR3, etc that has the Parallel's icon which implies to me that if I double click the file, it is given to Parallels to process. While this is neat... I 100% do not want it. My Windows machine doesn't need to be started except to do taxes once a year.

    Is there a way to tell Parallels to remove itself from the list of apps that is able to open most of these files? Obviously it needs to open the VM files if I double click them but I'd be willing to give that up as well and just open Parallels and then tell it which VM to start.
