How to open two different excel 2010 spreadsheets at the same time at the same computer individually?

I have two monitors, the main one and the extended one. and i want to be able to see the both sheets at the same time one the main monitor and the other in the extended one, for comparison work.

I have tried many things, but excel 2010 keeps one sheet open and the other is always minimized under it!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks

These are the steps we followed to fix the issue with opening excel files in more than a single instance.
 
1. Open Excel , Go to File > Options > Advanced.
2. Under Display, please uncheck " Show all windows in the Taskbar"
 
Note : We modified the registry to fix the issue. Please do not try on your own if you are not confortable working with the registry.
 
1. Click on Start > Run. Type "regedit" without quotes, Click OK
2. Expand HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and delete the values .xls and .xlsx
3. Close the Registry Editor
4. Right click on any Excel file > Open With
5. Choose Microsoft Office Excel from the available option or we need to naviage to locate excel.exe under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\excel.exe
6. Click OK
