The plug in adds a Google Drive icon to Microsoft Office that enables you to save directly into Google Drive. You can also open your Google Drive files while in Microsoft Office. This is a great new cross sharing option between Google Drive and Microsoft Office. I highly recommend checking it out.
First, you install the Google Plug-In. GET THE PLUG-IN HERE.
After installing and running the Google Drive plug-in,click Get Started. Open Microsoft Office. I opened a new blank Word Document.
I typed on the blank document as usual. When I clicked Save As, I now see Google Drive listed as one of my options in which to save my file.
Now I can work on the document in Microsoft Word and also in Google Drive. If I work on the file in Google Drive and make changes to the document, when I open it later in Word, a dialog box will appear telling me that changes have been made in Google Drive.
The Google Drive Plug-in for Microsoft Office is very easy to use. I believe that it will be an awesome addition to my Computer Applications classes.
