Hello,

If anyone is still looking for easy fixes to this try the following:

Identify the ICON for EXCEL, either in the start menu or the drive folder.

Click it and allow the window to open, then click it again to open a separate instance of Excel.

Then open the documents you want to work side by side with from within the separate windows.

Hope this helps.
