    I had an issue with a corrupted windows install. Tech support installed another copy of Windows from my backup, and deleted the original. I have renamed the Windows directory to "Windows 10", but when Parallels starts up, it is still using the Old name of "Windows 10 (1)", which is annoying me. How do I get this back to simply "Windows 10"?

    Hello PaulM15.
    Please shut Windows down (as opposed to simply suspending it), open the virtual machine configuration window, navigate to General, change the virtual machine's name to the desired value in the 'Name:' field and close the window.
