    There were previous posts about this but I haven't seen a solution. I have a fairly recent beefed up MacBook Pro and running Teams meetings within my Windows VM spikes the CPU. I was hoping to use a Windows VM for my work environment but this is making it unusable. I'm using Parallels Version 17.1.4 (51567) and my VM has 32GB memory and 12 processors assigned. Are there any settings we can change to bring down CPU usage?

    Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

    Hello, Please attach the screenshots of the CPU spice along with the screenshot of the Processes tab in the Task Manager and Windows version, and we will be glad to assist you further. Thanks.
