Opening files and windows in a separate instance of Excel.

Last Modified: 2019-12-29
On my home laptop I have excel 365 which always opens new files or new window of the same file in a separate instance of excel.

However on my work laptop all files and window are in the same instance of excel separated by tabs.
How can I get it to always open in a new instance of excel so that I can send it to the other monitor.

I have Windows 10 on both systems.

Edited: The taskbar shows two different instances of excel.Annotation-2019-12-19-153833.png
