I currently have several Microsoft Word documents that are sitting on my Google Drive and were uploaded over the past few months. I understand that it is possible to convert Microsoft Word documents to Google Docs format during file upload time, but is it possible to convert documents after uploading them to Google Drive without having to download and re-upload the same document again?

Best Answer

To convert a document, right click on it inside Google Drive. Choose Open withGoogle Docs. A new window will be opened with the document in Google Docs format and it is saved inside the same folder in your Google Drive.
