Know These Google Drive Chrome Extensions for Better Usage

If you’re a regular user of Google Drive while on the Chrome browser, you want to get the most out of this service they offer. With 15GB of free online storage and an option to upgrade to give you more space for business or personal use, along with a productivity suite containing Docs, Sheets, and Slides, when you add some intelligent extensions this becomes an exceptional tool needed in both homes and offices. This is all offered by Google Drive Chrome.

1) Office Editing for Docs, Sheets, and Slides

Google Drive allows you to store almost any file. However, without this extension installed, Google Docs is unable to open a Word Doc until it is converted to the Google Docs format. With this extension, you can permanently convert your files to Google format or open, edit, and save your DOC, DOCX, PPT, PPTX, XLS, and XLSX files.

2) Save to Google Drive

At times when it may not be as simple as you want it to be to add things to your Google Drive. This extension allows you to add individual parts, such as images or texts, or an entire web page to Google Drive for you to access later. Save PDFs, audio, video, and even Microsoft Office documents. If you wish, convert these documents automatically to Doc, Sheets, or Slides format. To save, simply hold-down or right-click items you wish stored and choose “Save to Google Drive”.

3) Checker Plus for Google Drive

Checker Plus not only works with Google Drive but also for Google Calendar, Gmail, and Google Photos. This extension allows you full access to all files stored on Google Drive as well as images on your Google Photos. This is the fastest way of searching and browsing files stored without having to access the site for Google Drive itself.

4) AbleBits

AbleBits has several incredible add-ons available for Google Sheets. These add-ons make working with Sheets much easier while enhancing your productivity.

These add-ons include:

  • Merge two sheets
  • Remove duplicates
  • Merge values from adjacent cells
  • Change table style, generate random values
  • Work with text, formulas, and format
  • Find and replace data in notes, links, formulas, and values
  • Split full names into different columns
  • Find fuzzy matches and correct typos in your sheet
  • Generate random values
  • Keep in mind extras like these are costly for Microsoft Excel, but free for Sheets.

5) Draftback

Draftback makes it simple to look up your revision history. All changes you made are basically played back for you. Everything is kept private unless you desire to make your playback public.

Install these intelligent Google Drive Chrome extensions and get a boost in work output.
