Visio 2016 Question-Opening separate windows

How do you get to the settings to allow Visio 2016 to open up in separate Windows?  I am trying to find out so that I can work on multiple screens.  I have looked up the instructions for previous versions of Visio but apparently they do not apply to the 2016 version.  Thoughts anyone?

Hi,

Please try this method:

•Open Microsoft Visio from the start menu.

•Go to File > Options > Advanced. Scroll down to the General section and enable an option called "Put all settings in Windows registry". Save changes and close Visio.

•Open Windows registry editor (regedit.exe), navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Visio\Application and modify a String type entry called SingleInstanceFileOpen. All you need to do is change the value from 1 to 0.

•Close the registry editor and try to open couple of Microsoft Vision documents by double clicking on them. They should now open in individual windows.

Please try it and check if it will work for you.

Regards,

Emi
