[Windows] Let the eyedropper work on the whole screen

I would like to be able to pick colors from another window (e.g. I have specs opened in my web browser).

    It seems like a serious limitation to not be able to color pick outside the window. Can we at least color pick from other XD windows? I mix bitmaps and shapes so it would be very useful

    Very annoying this wont work for windows, I used to have a mac and it did work fine outside the XD software - surely we have the tech smarts now to make it work just like Mac for windows???
    There is no practical use now for eyedropper in XD using windows so if you can never make it work, remove the function from view?

    It would be incredibly useful when exploring a design to be able to color pick colors outside of the XD window; on existing websites etc.
