How to Open Up Two Excel Documents Side by side

Have you ever had to look at two excel documents at the same time? By default it will open the excel documents in different tabs in the same window. It can get pretty annoying if you really need to see both at the same time.

Luckily, there is a little trick you can do so you can see both at the same time. Go ahead and open one document like normal. To open the next document, go to start and click run. In the run box type "excel" and then press enter. This will open up a completely different excel window. In that window you can open whatever document you need. You can also drag any excel file onto that window to open it.

Now you can view both documents at one, and maybe even use windows 7 new snap feature to see them even easier.
