How to open excel file in seperate windows

Recommended Posts

This is something that has driven me crazy over the eons. I have 2 monitors and I like to keep 2 different excel windows open. The problem is I cant find an easy way to double click and open excel files in 2 separate windows. Each time I double click an excel file it just opens the file in the current excel window.


I just installed excel 2010 hoping the behavior would change but nope... it's the same as excel 2003 and excel 2007.... All excel files still open in the same Excel Window which drives me crazy. Only solution I can find is opening up 2 windows then doing the old fashioned File Open...

LOL... join the WORLD on this one. This drives me NUTS also.


The best HACK I can offer you is this. OPEN the 2nd instance of Excel manually and then just DRAG-AND-DROP excel files into the Excel Window of your choice. DONT DOUBLE CLICK to open...


Hope that helps!
