ToolBox -

Google provides a Google Drive plug-in for Microsoft Office 2013. This software makes it possible to edit Microsoft Office files stored in Google Drive. This plug-in makes it possible for Office software (Word, Excel, etc.) to interact with files stored in Google Drive, much the same way Office software can interact with files stored in OneDrive for Business.

Download and install the plug-in from this location:

Start an Office program, in this example, Word. There will now be a “GOOGLE DRIVE” tab. Click this tab, then click Settings, then sign into your Google Drive account.

Once you are signed in, you will be able to open and save files directly from your Google Drive storage.
