These are the two approaches I'm aware of.  I tried the Launcher a while back and it was pretty good, but there was some small thing I didn't like about it, but I can't recall (I think it was somewhat minor though). I did try the registry tweak an that seemed to work but at some point I wanted to go back to the single instance approach and backed it out, and have worked with that since. Over time I have learned to like to single instance of Excels, and I just tile the windows etc, but I am a single monitor config.
