    What version of Parallels Desktop 16 is the free trial, home or pro edition? I just paid for the pro edition and simply entered the supplied key in my free trial screen. Things seem to be working. Are the extra features in the pro edition automatically available to me? Do I need to re-download Parallels Desktop 16 from the link in the purchase page to gain access to those features?

    Hello, did you purchase Parallels Desktop Pro version?
    Have you activated it already?
    If yes you will get all Parallels Desktop Pro edition options.

    Yes, I purchased Parallels Desktop Pro version and activated it. The reason I asked is, I don't appear to have the Developer menu option, nor do I have the network options such as profile in the configuration menu. I've attached screenshots of what I have versus what I see on your website. It's probably due to my inexperience with Parallels but I would like know how to get to the developer menu and the network options.
