Whitelist specific VM apps for Spotlight search?

    I was a bit horrified at first to have the Windows Registry Editor, and all the other junk that comes in a Windows installation, suddenly show up in Spotlight search in my mac host environment, but at least in Parallels Desktop 14, disabling the "Share Windows applications with Mac" switch in the VM's Applications settings works to disable them whole-sale.

    The one thing I use my VM for is testing IE11 and Edge compatibility, and I'd love to have those specific two apps white-listed for Spotlight. Is there a way to configure that, and if so, how?
