  1. Make Excel obey the "scroll inactive windows" setting in Windows 10

    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.

      Thanx for creating and voting on this folks!

      You should see this issue fixed starting with the latest Windows 10 Preview 17133.73 build update on 4/10 (https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/03/27/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-17133-for-fast/) as well as latest Excel Monthly channel 1803 Build 9126.2152 update on 4/11 (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/mt465751.aspx).

      Please let us know if you find this still not fixed with these builds (and later).

      thanx,
      Prash [MSFT]

    • error in support page

      in the support page: https://support.office.com/it-it/article/Rilevare-gli-errori-nelle-formule-3a8acca5-1d61-4702-80e0-99a36a2822c1?ui=it-IT&rs=it-IT&ad=IT there's an error.

      in particular at the point:
      Excel visualizza questo errore quando un valore non è disponibile per una funzione o una formula.

      Se si usa una funzione come CERCA.VERT, il valore cercato ha una corrispondenza nell'intervallo di ricerca? Nella maggior parte dei casi non è così.

      Provare a usare SE.ERRORE per eliminare l'errore #N/D. In questo caso si può usare:

      =SE.ERRORE(CERCA.VERT(D2;$D$6:$E$8;2;VERO),0)

      the correct formula is:

      =SE.ERRORE(CERCA.VERT(D2;$D$6:$E$8;2;VERO);0)

        We’re fixing this now, will likely take several days to propagate out to the internets.

          Black theme is back. Update to the latest update for Office 2016, and you can choose Black Theme as one of the options.

          Cheers,

            Hi Cory,

            You can customize the ribbon under File > Options > Customize Ribbon. There, you can create new Ribbons, new Chunks for existing Ribbons, etc.

            Hope that helps,
            Dan [MS]
