    Help. I am using MSProject 2003 and it won't let me have multiple windows
    open for multiple files. When I open a new file, it puts it in the same
    window as the already open file. I am also unable to open/invoke another
    Project window from using Start/Programs when one is already open.

    Hi Biznuz,

    Welcome to this Microsoft Project newsgroup :)

    When you have opend a few, try Window/Arrange All

    FAQs, companion products and other useful Project information can be seen at
    this web address: <http://www.mvps.org/project/>

    Hope this helps - please let us know how you get on :))

    Thanks Mike, that is what I have been doing, but I would rather have two
    completely different sessions of Project going at the same time. Other MS
    applications allow it. Seems like there might be a bug with 2003.

    Nope. No bug. It has always been that way and hasn't changed.

    Hi Biznuz,

    I'm not sure if this is what you are searching for...Although you cannot run
    multiple sessions of Project you can have each Project file open appear in as
    a separate item in your task bar.
    Check Tools>Options, view tab and enable "Windows in Taskbar" under the Show
    headings.

    Thanks Julie, that helps somewhat, so that I can use ALT-Tab to toggle
    between the two. However, I would still like to have two independent windows
    to move around the screen so that I could see more columns and tasks when
    toggling. This would be especially beneficial on my widescreen laptop.

    Hi Biznuz,

    You're welcome for what small assistance I could give. Sorry, there isn't
    another answer available to run two instances of Project.
