When I bought a laptop, I only used Google Docs and never really bothered to get MS Office installed. After a few days, I have a desktop at home on which I have MS-Office 2007. I obviously end up using MS-Office applications to create documents when using my desktop. To access them on my laptop, I end up uploading these files to Google Docs so I can use them on my laptop. I know it is a little complicated but Google had made life a lot more easy with their latest plugin. 🙂
How to use Google Cloud Connect with MS Office
- This plugin works with MS Office 2007 onwards. Download it from this link and open a MS Office document.
- The document once open will prompt you to connect that file to Google Docs (see image below).
- Once you click on ‘Login’ just enter your Google username and password. The plugin allows both manual and automatic synchronization with Google Docs.
- The synced document is also available on Google Docs.
