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

Add A Color Picker Tool

A simple color picker tool has been something I have been forever longing for! It would be so nice to have the ability to grab colors from an image on the fly instead of having to use a third-party tool and manually type in the RGB code.

I envision this being an Office Suite feature, where you could grab colors from say a PowerPoint slide or even a web page and fill your selected cells with the exact color.

If you wanted to get really fancy, you could even have a column in the pre-formatted Ribbon galleries to update one-click styles with the picked color in real time. For example if I wanted to format a table with a picked color, I could go to the Table Styles gallery and automatically see a preview of what that color would look like with the various pre-formatted styles
