To do this, open Excel and open your first file as normal. Then, instead of opening the second file from within Excel, go to the Start menu and open Excel from there again. This will create a second copy of Excel which you can display on the secondary screen. You can open the second document from there.

I'm using Excel 2019 & Office Tabs 13.

In single window mode, I cannot have two instances of excel unless I open via right clicking the OfficeTab worksheet name and selecting "New in New Window" or "Open in New Window".  This is unsatisfactory as I have written user defined functions in an add-in and on the second instance, the functions cannot be "found"  and the full path to my add in is shown in the formula bar.  If I press [F2] to edit the formula then [Enter] "#NAME?" is shown in the cell.

If I am NOT in single window mode, I can readily have two instances of excel, each on a separate monitor BUT the tabs are duplicated in each window regardless of which instance the file is opened in.  This is extremely distracting & confusing so as to be unworkable.

Previously I was using  Excel 2010 & Office Tabs 13 with no such issues.
