Which version of Photoshop exactly and which OS? Everything works fine for me using Photoshop 21.2.3 on Windows 10.

Update: here is how to check/use this feature:

  • Activate Eyedropper
  • Click somewhere on canvas and hold
  • Move cursor outside Photoshop without releasing left mouse click

Hi,

Mine is working fine too.

So when you click and hold to sample colours outside Photoshop it does not work for you?
