How to remove Parallels from a Mac to free up disk space

my 500GB disk was just about filled, and I do not use the Windows partition any longer. So, I deleted Windows 7.pvm which was about 100 GB and even emptied it from my Trash.

But, the free disk space did not change!

I recall some partitioning in Parallels which I think I need to deal with.

How do I do this? Parallels is still installed, but that is Version 10.
