By using Google Drive, you can easily convert documents to Google Docs format. Once you’ve converted your documents (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) to Google Docs format, you’ll be able to edit them using Google Drive, and you’ll also be able to make changes from anywhere with the help of an Internet connection.
Using Google Docs can also help you in saving online storage space because the files that are saved in Google Docs format don’t use any of your Google Drive storage space.
You can also set Google Drive to convert files to Google Docs format when they are uploaded, allowing you to upload a large number of documents without the need to manually converting each document one-by-one.
Let’s learn how to convert multiple documents to Google Docs format.
How to Convert Multiple Documents to Google Docs
Here are the step-by-step instructions:
Step 1: Open Google Drive in your favorite web browser to get started.
Step 2: Now click on “Settings” from the cog symbol at the top of Google Drive.
Step 3: After clicking on “Settings” you have to tick the box “Convert uploaded files to Google Docs format”. Then go to the top-right corner of the window and click the “Done” button.
Step 4: Next, click “New” in the Google Drive sidebar. Then, click “File Upload“.
Step 5: A new window will open for you to upload all of your Microsoft documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) that you wish to convert to Google Docs format. By holding down the “Ctrl” key and clicking on multiple files at the same time, you may choose numerous files at once. After uploading the documents they will automatically get converted to the Google Docs format.
If you no longer want your files to be converted automatically to Google Docs format – you have to simply remove that checkmark from the box “Convert uploaded files to Google Docs format” and you are good to go.
