    I want to use a different username when I install Windows 10 then what is used on my Mac.
    Why can't I get this to work? That other VM company allows me to do this.

    Hello AaronD6, To change the virtual machine name please follow below mentioned steps
    1. Do one of the following: Click the Parallels icon in the menu bar and choose Configure. If the Parallels Desktop menu bar is visible at the top of the screen, choose Actions > Configure.
    2. Click General and type a new name in the Name field. Thanks.

    On my Mac, I do not see any option for Configure.
    On the top of the screen menu bar, there isn't an Actions either. There is a Preferences, which I have scrubbed and not found any of the items that you mention.
    Even with installing a new VM. Nothing there that would allow a user to configure Name. Actually the only place is in the VM configuration where is says Name but that is the Name of the VM not a username.
