Opening multiple files in separate windows in VW 2018





This is my first post as a VW Forum member, so thanks for reading!


My query is likely a simple one - I have 2 PC monitors, and would like to use one screen for one file, and another screen for another file, in order to compare what is going on as I am working.


However, I cannot seem to find the setting to allow this, and have looked around the 'window' settings and have checked the workspace settings for things related to docking of windows.


Any advice?

   Welcome to the VW Forum.


   On the Mac, I uncheck the "Use Application Window" menu and I get individual windows for each file. I think you can also tear a TAB away and a new window will be  created when you release the mouse button. I can only assume it is the same on the PC. 


   Here's the menu as it is on my Mac. Each time I open a file it opens in a new window with "Use Application Window" unchecked.
