Everytime i open a excel document say from a website, it launches excel and opens in it
Anymore excel documents i open, they open in that same instance of Excel rather then opening in a
separate Excel instance window.

How can I change this so everytime I open a excel document
it opens in a totally different Excel window

What version of MS Office are you using? What Windows version? What browser?
If you're opening Excel files on the internet, maybe the next one opens in the background? Have you checked the taskbar to see if there are additional instances of your browser or Excel?

I occasionally need to have a spreadsheet up on each screen at work, I just launch a new copy of excel and open the 2nd file from there - usually by double clicking the file - it goes to whichever instance of excel I most recently had active
