Opening MULIPLE Office 2010 files in Win 7 by metmanners
Posted: 16 Jan 12

With the file open:  File/Open/(Hover over the file and right click for a drop down menu and look for New)/click on New.

In ms Office 2010 Operating System Win 7 you can open an additional copy of an Excel file or Workbook -- let us say file titled A -- so that you can view multiple worksheets, e.g., sheet 1 vs. sheet 2 or sheet 41 side by side within a Workbook but no more than two files at a time as follows:

With the Workbook open, click on File/Open/navigate in explorer to the same filename and right click for a drop down menu/New.  Voila
You now have two full copies of the same Workbook and can open whichever sheet wanted in either or both copies.

Or .....navigate in explorer to a different filename – say title B -- and right click/New.   Now you have a full Excel Workbook A and Workbook B to view simultaneously.


If you minimize either one of these Excel files, you cannot re-open it from the jump list.  However, you can joggle between Restore window and Maximize window in Win7 while keeping both files open.
