Remove Parallels applications from spotlight in Mac OSX


It is annoying to accidentally launch an app in your VMs while you are trying to launch the native version. Remove apps folder from spotlight search location.

  • System Preferences/Spotlight/Privacy Click on the “+” button and choose the directory:
  • /Users/”your home folder”/Applications
  • exclude it from the spotlight search.
