Powerpoint help: Two instances of powerpoint
I discovered this problem today. With most of microsoft products, you can open more than one instance at the same time. However, in powerpoint, you cannot do this! Why? Who knows why Microsoft decided to not let you do this. But there are two ways to work around.
Work-a-round 1: The EASY Solution (Requires two monitors)
1. If your powerpoint window is maximised, press the minimise button.
2. Stretch the window across the width and height of both monitors.
3. Open the two presentations you wish to have open simultaneously.
4. Arrange them next to each other. Done!

There are actually a few different ways to do this. Check out this post and the associated comments!
