Viewing Excel on Two Monitors

Unlike MS Word, the great minds at Microsoft have chosen to not make the default ability to view different Excel workbooks simultaneously on two monitors. Since many of us use multiple monitors and would occasionally like to compare worksheets, this can be annoying.

Although you can mess around with the folder options in the Windows Tools, there is a very easy way to make Excel display to your liking. All you have to do is hold down on the CTRL key when you launch Excel for a second time and it will open a second instance that you can drag into a second window.

Yup! That’s all there is to it! If you use two or more monitors, give it a try sometime! It is easy and effective.
