How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Unhiding Column A should no longer be a usability nightmare

Unintuitive tricks are required to unhide column A once it's been hidden. Why not provide a hover click-target that offers to reveal column A if the mouse pointer lingers up in the left edge of the header of column B? In fact, why not use such a widget to allow any hidden columns to be revealed? If I leave my mouse pointer in the column header row adjacent to a hidden column, that is what I want to do.

We now make this much easier with Excel 2016 – there’s a special hit target if column A is hidden.

Cheers,
