Directly modify Google Drive files with desktop applications
Skyfiles is a fully functional Google Drive client app, which allows you to manage Google Drive files with your desktop apps instead of working through a browser.
With Skyfiles, you can harness the full power of your Windows applications to edit Google Drive files with ease - not only documents, spreadsheets and powerpoint slides, but also images, text files, or any format supported by your local software.
The original name of this tool was GDocsDrive. It was renamed to Skyfiles in 2019.
