Multiple Intellij isolated running instances

Is there a way to open up two projects in two Intellij isolated processes ?

Currently they open up in the same and share memory and what not. When intellij starts to go slow, I have to shut down all projects, some of them are only used as a sandbox and have low footprint, why I would like to keep it opened all the time, no matter what I do with the others. I should be able to shut down and start with a fresh "quick" intellij session while keeping others as is.

Thanks!

Hello Hamidam,

You can create several copies of your IntelliJ installation and specify different
config and system paths in idea.properties. Then these instances will be
isolated (at the cost of double disk space and time for building indexes).

Thanks, that'll do just fine :)

Edit:
Btw, should I also edit the plugins.path ?
