    Hello jeffm25,

    Kindly perform the following actions to locate your virtual machine.

    1. On your host Mac, go to Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal.
    2. Run the command:
    open ~/Parallels
    A new Finder window should open and display your current virtual machines.
    3. Double-click on your Windows virtual machine to register and start your virtual machine.

    If the issue persists, kindly collect a technical report at the moment of issue reproduction (
    (click the Parallels icon >Help > Send technical data > check "Attach screenshots..." > press Send Report) and send the report's 9-digit ID as a reply to this post.
