    WORK AROUND (MS Project 2016)
    1) Open one project file with MS Project (double click on the *.MPP file)
    2) Open second project file with Internet Explorer (right click on the *.MPP file and Open With)
    --- A Dialog Box Message will pop up with following text,
    "What do you want to do with filename.mpp?"
    --- Select "Open".
    --- Then the Internet Explorer window will have no content (blank page). It is OK.
    --- Switch back to MS Project to view a new Dialog Box Message with the following text,
    "Project Cannot Open the File".
    ---Select "OK"
    VOILA ! !
    You now have two separate windows, with two different filenames projects that are each editable and savable.
    Note: When you save with new filename, it will create and save BUT does not display/update in the browser.
