Excel 2010 opens one screen on top of the other not separate windows

I have a user that has Office 2010 and is complaining that when she opens second excel document, it opens directly on top of the document she already had open. She used to be able to have several excel docs open at once and view them each at the same time. This must be an Office setting. Can anyone tell me how to change her back?

    If she just opens two instances of excel... then opens a workbook in each one... she should have the flexibility she's looknig for.
