    I'm trying out Parallels so I can use some specific software that requires Windows. I downloaded Windows 11 on my Macbook Air after installing the Parallels trial. Now I find that the program I wish to use won't install using Windows 11. I believe it can be installed with Windows 10 and I would like to try. So, is it possible to install Windows 10 as a virtual machine on Parallels once Windows 11 has been installed and if so, how?

    Hello,
    You may refer to this guide to download and install Windows 10: https://kb.parallels.com/en/123462
    However, please note that if you are running Parallels Desktop on an Arm-based Mac (M1/M2), Windows 10 is not compatible to run, but if you have an Intel-based Mac, you will be able to download and install the Windows 10 as well.
    Thank you
