Default Open new instance of excel every time I click file

I have Excel 2003. I want Excel to open a new session of Excel when I click
on an Excel file every time instead of it opening into the current session of
excel. How can I set this?

Default Open new instance of excel every time I click file

Try this:

Open Windows Explorer
Select "Tools"
Select "Folder Options"
Select the "File Types" Tab
Scroll down to find and select the XLS extension
Click the "Advanced" Button
Select the "Open" action from the list
Click the "Edit..." Button
Where is says "Application used to perform action:"
If not already there, add:

/e "%1"

to the end of the file path
Uncheck the "Use DDE" box
Click OK
Click OK
Click Close

That should do it.

HTH,
Elkar

Jon,

I've seen a lot of other responses, but this is the only one that actually
did what I needed. Thanks.
