Opening Excel In Another Instance In Windows 7

Opening Excel In Another Instance In Windows 7

Price: FREE

In XP if I wanted to open another spreadsheet in a separate instance so I can view them side-by-side. I just had to launch a new instance and get focus on it. Then if you double click a file, you will get the new file opening in the last instance of excel that had focus. In Windows 7 when you double click on the file it seems to open in the first instance of excel, not the last one to have focus.
Any way to fix this?

If Excel 2003 is open and I double click an xls file in Explorer, it opens in a new instance of Excel. Very annoying. I can work around it by dragging and dropping the new file onto an open Excel file, causing it to open in the same instance. But this is cumbersome compared to double clicking.
I have seen posts elsewhere (though couldn't find them here) suggesting running
