Parallels Toolbox plays new tricks

By

The latest version of Parallels Toolbox features new and improved functions.

Parallels Toolbox, available for Windows and macOS, is designed to simplify the operation of a computer by reducing selected tasks to a single click.

Parallels Toolbox 3.5 includes more than 30 tools.

"We listened to PC and Mac users who asked us for new tools they need to further simplify their lives," said Parallels senior vice president of engineering and support Nick Dobrovolskiy.

"Break Time, Energy Saver, Hide Menu Icons, Clipboard History and Sleep Timer are now included with dozens of other one-click solutions. Together, they make Parallels Toolbox an indispensable one-stop application for businesses and individuals who like saving time and money."

What's new in the Windows version?

Energy Saver activates various settings (some usually hidden) to reduce system resource usage and increase battery life. The company claims this can reduce power consumption by up to 8%.


 

Break Time reminds you to stand and take a break from your computer. Work periods are variable between 30 and 50 minutes with breaks of one to 15 minutes.

Download Audio download a single audio file from supported sites, with the option of downloading playlists from YouTube.

The Saving Files and Screenshots Markup tools have been improved.

And in the macOS version:

Clipboard History retains items copied to the Mac clipboard for up to 30 days, with the option of excluding particular applications.


 

Hide Menu Icons reduces menu bar clutter by concealing Menu Icons selected by the user and then redisplays them with a click.


 

Energy Saver activates various settings (some usually hidden) to reduce system resource usage and increase battery life. The company claims this can reduce power consumption by up to 8%.


 

Sleep Timer sleeps or shuts down the system after a user-selected delay between 15 minutes and six hours.

In addition, the Clean Drive and Find Duplicates tools have been improved.

Free trials of both Parallels Toolbox 3.5 for Windows and Mac are available. Each product costs $27.99 for an annual licence, including free updates with new and enhanced tools during the year.

Parallels' customer referral program now rewards both the referrer and the invitee with a free three-month subscription.
