When I use C-x 5 2, it opens a new frame showing the same file that I'm already editing. So, every time I open a new frame, I get an unwanted need to "swap" to another file. Is there a way to get around this? Thanks.

    The question is unclear - underspecified. Just what buffer (file) do you want displayed in the new (or the already existing) frame? You don't want the same buffer - that's all you've said so far. – Drew May 11 '20 at 2:36

Found it! find-file-other-frame (C-x 5 f) works nicely.
