    Is there any way to prevent Parallels from automatically starting when clicking on a file associated with Windows?

    Specifically, how to I prevent Parallels from automatically starting when accidentally double-clicking on a Windows file? I'm running a Mac and use Parallels for a Windows 10 VM.

    Hi In Parallels under options>sharing>share windows > uncheck Access windows folders from Mac. I keep my vm's separate, if you do this you will have to start your VM to access windows files and folders.
