How to open a new instance of Excel even if an instance is open in another desktop

I have a very big slow unresponsive spreadsheet permanently open in Excel in Desktop 2.

If I open a new spreadsheet in Desktop 1 and an instance of Excel is not already running in Desktop 1, then it loads the spreadsheet into the instance of Excel in Desktop 2. How can I force it to open a new instance of Excel in Desktop 1 (unless an instance is already running in Desktop 1)?

It seems to me my question is how multiple desktops should behave, and how my old Sun workstation from the 90s behaved! I.e. that the desktops should be essentially independent of each other.
