Remove VMs from Parallels VM startup list Apps
If you end up with unused virtual machines in your Parallels startup list, you can get rid of them by removing aliases from your ~/Documents/.parallels-vm-directory folder.

Choose the Finder's Go to Folder command under the Go menu, paste in the above path and go. In the folder, delete the VM aliases you don't want.

You may want to also delete the actual VM data, or maybe just find out where it lives. To do so, right-click on a VM alias and choose Show Original or Get Info from the contextual menu. You'll be taken to, or shown the path to that VM's files.

The handy thing about only having one VM in the list is it's selected automatically when you start Parallels.

This hint is also great for adding aliases! For some odd reason, a few months back Parallels began to show only my Boot Camp VM, not my other VMs. I went to this folder and dragged in aliases to my pvs files and they now appear.

Great hint, thanks.
