What is a GDOC file?
A GDOC file is a document created by Google Docs, an online document editor included with Google Drive. It contains a URL reference to a Google Docs document stored in Google Drive. GDOC documents store text, images, equations, drawings, charts, and tables.
Google Drive is a file storage service that also features the Docs, Sheets, and Slides programs. Drive can be downloaded and installed in Windows or macOS as a desktop client for synchronizing remote Google Drive files with the local computer. If you install the Google Drive desktop client, your Google Docs documents are accessible within a special folder named Google Drive, which is on the local hard drive. This folder is used to synchronize files with the remote Google Drive. When you double-click a GDOC file, the document is opened in Google Drive in your default web browser.
The Google Docs interface appears similar to Microsoft Word with a toolbar that allows you to change the text font, size, spacing, and alignment. The program also comes with word count, translation, voice typing, and dictionary capabilities.
