“I like the seamless experience between my MS Windows and Mac apps so I enable Application Sharing. To enable just go to the Settings menu and select Default Applications and finally select “Run Windows applications from your Macs Applications Folder”. Now I can have my Windows apps accessible via Launch Pad or the Applications folder.”
