Office 2010 Remoteapp and multiple documents

    Question

  • I have a windows 2008 r2 (3 servers) remote desktop farm with office 2010 installed.  Remoteapps are published to all the desktops with group policy.

    When a user opens word/excel documents, this fires up the remoteapp on the terminal server and it works great. The problem is I've a couple of users who want to open multiple documents in multiple windows.  However opening a second document/spreadsheet only opens another tab within the same word/excel instance. 

    Is there anyway to get word/excel to display 1 document in 1 instance.  The setting "Show all windows in the Taskbar" makes this work in a full rdp session but not with remoteapp.

    It appears this behavior was changed for Office 2013 but I cannot find anyway to make this happen with remoteapp/office 2010.

    This does not answer the question, I am not sure why it was marked as an answer.

    The issue is ts related as even the setting "Show all windows in the taskbar" does not have the same behavior in remoteapp vs local installed app.  

    I'm still hopeful Andy may possibly come up with an answer, for the time being we have the user clicking on view>arrange windows> vertical to put two excel spreadsheets side by side in the same window to compare them.  its a clunky work around especially if she has more than two excel files open.
