Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If my users have Excel 2007 open and double click on another Excel document in explorer (or goto file open and open a new one), this document is opened within the same window.

Can I configure every new document to open in its own separate window? I'm sure I'm probably missing an obvious configuration setting here.

Is there a way to configure this globally via GPO or something?

No. It is not possible. –  mailq Aug 19 '11 at 19:35

Possibly http://www.eceblogger.com/2008/08/where-did-the-multiple-windows-go-in-excel-2007/ ?

(I think that will open two copies of Excel with two windows, with a document in each. Not one copy of Excel with two documents and two windows. I don't think the latter is possible anymore).

Yes, the proper way to do this is to open Excel twice and File>>Open from there. I find it annoying too I must admit, but there you go. –  Kieran Walsh Aug 22 '11 at 23:37
