So I guess it is a well known fact that Microsoft Office for Mac utilizes only one core. I am wondering how I can make it faster or how can I make it use all four cores I have on my Mac?
We can install Parallels on OS X and run Windows on Parallels, then install Office over there. But the question is, in this case will the Office which is running on Parallels utilize all the cores I have on my Mac?
Correct me if I am wrong but looks like it will be utilizing single core aswell. I tested like this: Installed Parallels, then microsoft office then opened a huge spreadsheet with format *.xls and tried to insert 5 columns. It is taking forever and when I open the activity monitor I see this: On the picture below it's clear that CPU utilization is only 27 percent. :(
