Stuggling with eyedropper tool in Indesign (and all other Adobe Apps)

I only use the eyedropper tool for what it was original intended, to pick a color. Since the introduction of the tool, it has been over-engineered to the point where picking a color has become nearly impossible. There are so many things to consider for it to work, that I am wondering if someone has already created a checklist on the topic and would like to post it here? A checklist of all the buttons that need to be pushed, correct settings that need to be checked, things that need to be turned on or off and so on, so that I can use it to pick a color?

Also, if someone knows of a 3rd party plugin that is easy to use, works reliable and has a unified experience across all Adobe Apps for picking a color anywhere on the screen (prefereably also outside of App window), I would appreciate it, if you could point me to it.

I am currently using screenshots and then Snaggit to pull colors. My doctor has warned me not to use the Adobe Eye Dropper tool any longer, as it raises my blood pressure to very dangerous levels (;
