You should be able to click File, Open or File, New to start a new spreadsheet and have it open the file you want in another window.

Excel Windows vs Taskbar Rollup

by cnwoods In reply to how to open excel documen ...

Most times Excel will open new documents in a new window. What you may be experiencing is a Windows Feature, which will group and roll up several windows by the same application to save space on your taskbar. If you want to stop it doing this:

* Right click on Taskbar
* Select Properties
* Check or Uncheck Group similar taskbar buttons

I'm presuming XP here. If that doesn't work, you may need to search 'taskbar grouping' for your OS.
