  2. Ability to sort Recent Workbooks list by latest modified

    The File - Open - Recent menu used to display recently used workbooks at the top. Now a (potentially extensive) list of pinned documents sorted by alphabetical order appears. I would like to be able to sort by date modified. It's already a column, but it does not allow sorting.

  3. Cannot open another file when editing a cell value in an already opened file

    Assume you're working on a file called abc.xlsx, and you double-click Cell A1 (that is, you put a value in A1 and leave it in that state without clicking or hitting the enter key or exiting the cell, which means the cursor is still blinking inside the cell).

  8. When opening an excel file, always show the sheet from cell A1 and not somewhere in the middle

    I'd like to suggest the function when opening a excel file, the sheet should always show cell A1 in order to avoid the mistake to think the sheet is empty, eventhough it's not. When the sheet is moved and no content is available, a person which is not familiar with the file, could think that the file is empty, eventhough it's not!
