Google Preview Mode

Do you have Microsoft Office files in your Google Drive account? When you click on them to open, it always opens as a preview. Did you ever wonder if you could do anything else with this preview? Well, you can!

Of course, you can print and download the file, but if you are collaborating with other people, you can also comment on the file.
