Excel 2010 Open new file in new window From Outlook attachment

Last Modified: 2015-11-18
I have a user that can't do her job unless everything opens in a separate window... Yes I said she cannot do her job...
I have already done the reg hack which fixes the issue and she can double click files and it will open a new window, BUT when she opens an attachment from Outlook it opens in the window of the first excel window opened.  Cntrl tab is not an option saving it somewhere like it should be and opening is not an option she wants it to open from an attachment directly to a new window.
As a temporary work around I have shown her to view the excel files inline in the outlook message pane until I can find a solution.  I can put her back on 2003, but I am trying to get everyone off of 2003 as we are seeing more and more issues with it.
