I have two Excel documents which I want to view in separate side-by-side windows.

The accepted answers for How can I make Excel documents open in different windows? and Open Worksheets In New Window In Excel 2010 Without Administrative Access both suggest using the Registry Editor. However, I'm using Excel on a work-provided PC, which means editing the registry isn't really an option.

Is there a way to view multiple documents at once in Microsoft Excel 2010 without using the Registry Editor?

You can open your Books in the same Excel instance, just use Open in Excel Menu or Recent Books to open several Books.
To view it side by side use:

  • View Tab (In Excel Ribbon)
  • Arrange All (Window Group)
  • Choose the convenient option

And you will see the multiple Books side by side
