    PD version:18.3.1,win 11,Mac os:montery12.6.7.
    problem: in circumstance of mac os and pd with win11, I uninstalled pd and want to install a new one. I had thought the uninstallation would envolve windows11, but in fact not. when i reinstalled pd, after that a new windows11 was installed, which now shown as win11(1). How to uninstall the old win11, or how to do to resolve the issue?thanks!

    To remove the Windows 11 virtual machine, please follow the steps below:
    1. Launch Parallels, but do not start your Windows 11 virtual machine
    2. Click on the Parallels icon on the Mac menu bar > select Control Center.
    3. Right-click on your virtual machine and select Remove "Windows11".
    4. Select Keep files if you wish to access the files from this virtual machine later. The virtual machine will be removed from the list, but it will remain in its original location.
    or Select Move to Trash, if you do not need any data from this virtual machine and want to erase it completely.
