MS Word 2007, PC - how to open second document in SEPARATE window?

I know there's an option somewhere in MSWord 2007 that will let me have two completely separate MSWord windows with two different documents open at once. This is NOT the same thing as working with two documents side-by-side in one main Word window.

But damned if I can remember how. Anyone?

I thought Shift-double clicking did this. I think an option also allows you to run multiple instances of Word.

Thank you Stopgap!

...that is so NOT intuitive!

If you don't want to change your taskbar preferences, you can also manually open another instance of Word, and then manually open the 2nd document.
