Make Excel obey the "scroll inactive windows" setting in Windows 10 (resubmitted Aug 2020)
Make Excel obey the "scroll inactive windows" setting in Windows 10. Currently Excel will scroll when it is an inactive window, but it will not allow other windows to scroll when it is the active window. This makes transcribing data from a source that needs to be scrolled difficult.
This idea was apparently fixed in 2018 (link below) but perhaps something broke it, as it is present at this time, evidenced also by the long comment thread in the "completed" item.
Please fix this again.
Still not fixed! Would love an update here.

Good day, I have found that if I have Excel and Word open, I can scroll through the inactive window.
But the problem comes in when I have two Excel documents open. It only scrolls the active Excel window even when hovering over the inactive Excel window. As stated above, this makes working with data tedious.
Side note: Two Word windows does not have the same problem; I can scroll through the inactive window.
