Default open new instance of excel. Plese cure my frustration

Hello
I have a simple request.

I have two excel files. I would like to open them both at the same time in
different windows. So basically I would have two instance's of excel open.
Currently when I open both it launches them in the same instance. This is
really driving me crazy.

thanks

If you're running xl2k+ and want separate windows (but the same instance):
Tools|Options|View Tab|Check Windows in task bar

If you really want separate instances of excel, start one instance normally,
then
windows start button|Run|
excel
and hit ok

Then file|open the second workbook in that second instance.
