We have good news. We’re in the planning stages to show the cell selection even when the Excel window is not the active window.
Thanks for supporting this suggestion.

This is really essential! I see an admin said back in 2015 that they'd look into it - any chance we could get an update? You have no idea how much time this would save me - I often have to have an application open and reference an Excel spreadsheet, but it takes me a few seconds every time to figure out where I was in the spreadsheet (and if I'm working with long spreadsheets, those few seconds add up really fast). Keeping it highlighted persistently even when working in another application would completely eliminate this problem!Justin supported this idea ·
