How To: Force Excel to open Files in a New Instance

I don't like the way Excel opens files in the existing application as you can't then move them about as readily as if they are in their own individual windows.

I find the setting to change this behaviour rather obscure so here is a reminder:

  • File 
  • Excel options
  • Click on the 'advanced' tab
  • Scroll down to general
  • Check the "ignore other applications that use 'Dyanamic Data Exchange (DDE)"
