    Always-on Cortana

    Use Cortana, the Microsoft speech-enabled virtual assistant, even when Windows 10 is not the forefront application.

    Parallels Toolbox for Mac lets you quickly perform dozens of essential daily tasks on your Mac - at the low price of a single app. Take screenshots, secure private files with a password, convert Facebook or YouTube videos and much more.
