Edit your MS Office docs from Chrome using Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides


Chrome has an extension called "Application Launcher for Drive." Here are my instructions for a Window computer:
  1. Go into Google Chrome and find the extension
  2. Install and enable it 
  3. Go to any MS office file on your computer (whether in Google Drive or not)
  4. Right click on it, and notice you can "open with"
  5. If there's no option for "open with Google Chrome," add it from Program Files (86)
  6. Now open the file with Google Chrome. You will see you are in "Office Compatibility Mode."
  7. You can edit and leave it as a MS Office document, or you can save it as a Google Doc, Sheet or Slide.
