I'll try it, at least until Kutools fixes this, it's a good workaround. I will have to close all my worksheets except for the one I need to duplicate.

It's an improvement!

Thank you for not giving up on this :)(

Not sure if this is any good but it sort of works around the prob:

on open worksheet, go to View --> New window
I then see two tabs for the same workbook next to each other with different numbers in the names
Then go to View --> click 'view side by side'
This then opens two versions and I can drag one onto the second monitor. (it does seem to close down the tabs add in though)
If you click 'view side by side' again, it goes back to before

Does not work. Ctrl + N creates a new book, not a new window of the same book.

Normally I would choose -View, -New Window, then I get the same workbook open in two tabs, but in the same window.

I want to see the same workbook in two different windows, in my case, each on a separate monitor.

This is easily done in Excel, without office-tab installed.

I guess I can disable office-tab temporarily, then re-enable it. Seems like that option should be avoidable :)

I asked about this in April, and somebody named Jay Chivo said it wasn't supported.

Seems like a very basic thing to be able to view and work on the same file in two windows.

When will this be addressed?

See three screenshots below.

The option to "Open in New Window" is not available!

What is the workaround???
