Integrate Dropbox and Google Drive in Office 2013 as a Cloud Storage

One of the new features of Office 2013 is that it lets you save documents directly to SkyDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage system, giving you access to files anywhere there is a internet connection. However, if you prefer cloud storage services such as Dropbox or Google Drive apart from SkyDrive to save your Office documents, here is how you can integrate them in Office 2013.

The method is based on a script created by a Dropbox forum user (for Dropbox) and modified by SumTips (for Google Drive), which allows you to add Dropbox as well as Google Drive as a cloud storage in Office 2013.

How to integrate Dropbox and Google Drive to Office 2013?

Download the script for Dropbox (as well as for Google Drive) and run it. It’ll ask you to press any key. Just do that. Then, enter the path of your Dropbox folder (For, example C:UserUsernameDropbox) and hit Enter.

The script will make necessary changes to the registry. Once it finishes, press Enter key to close the Command Prompt.

Now, go to Office 2013 and select “Save” option. You’ll see an option “Add a Place” (you must sign in with your Microsoft account to see the option). Just click it and add “Dropbox”. (Repeat the same method for Google Drive also)
