BELLEVUE, Wash., Oct. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Parallels, a global leader in cross-platform solutions, today launched Parallels® Desktop for Chromebook Enterprise (parallels.com/chrome), the world’s first software that runs Windows directly on enterprise Chromebooks.

“Parallels Desktop for Chromebook Enterprise incorporates more than 22 years of Parallels’ experience innovating software that makes it simple for people to seamlessly run multiple operating systems and applications on any device, to be more productive,” said Nick Dobrovolskiy, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Support for Parallels. “In addition to simultaneously running Windows and its full-featured apps alongside Chrome OS apps directly on a Chromebook, Parallels Desktop integrates a variety of useful features: Copy and paste text and graphics between Windows 10 and Chrome OS; frustration-free printing from Windows apps via shared Chrome OS printers or from printers that are only available for Windows 10; and the option to save Windows files locally on a Chromebook, in the cloud, or both.”
