open two excel 2010 sheets at the same time in different screens

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

Have you tried this:
splitIt should work with extended to second monitor desktop. You will not have 2 ribbons, of course

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
