Microsoft Office 2013 comes packed with a new feature which allows users to connect cloud services as a storage place and use them within the open/save menu. As of now, Microsoft Office 2013 only supports two services – SkyDrive and Office 365 SharePoint. But if you are looking for a way to integrate Dropbox or Google drive into Office 2013, then here is a Simple Solution.
To add Dropbox or Google drive into Office 2013, you will need to run a script on your System.
Follow these steps to set it up:
- Download and run this script: dropbox_service_add.bat (via Dropbox forums) or Gdrive_service_add.bat (For Google Drive Users via Sumtips).
- In the next step you will be asked to press any key to continue.
- Script will now make the required changes to your system registry.
- Close the Command Prompt window after it finishes.
- Start any Office program and proceed to add your Google Drive or Dropbox account as a Cloud Service.
That’s all! Now you must be able to save, open or sync documents directly to your Dropbox or Google Drive account from within Microsoft Office just like you can from SkyDrive.
Remove Dropbox or Google Drive from office 2013
- To remove the service simply click on Remove within Word. You can integrate it again at later time if you need.
These scripts works both on 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 8 and 7 (you need to be already signed in to your Microsoft skydrive account)
