Excel 2nd Instance

From desktop, double clicking a xlsx spreadsheet, Excel automatically opens (if not already open).
When double clicking a 2nd spreadsheet from the desktop, I'd like for a 2nd instance of Excel to open.
Instead of having the 2nd xlsx opened in the first instance of Excel.

Does anyone know if this is possible. Reg edit maybe?
Thanks

I would open the second instance first by

1. holding Shift when you click on the Excel icon,

THEN

2. open the spreadsheet by either going to File - Open or dragging the spreadsheet into this second instance.
