The AODocs WebDAV client is a small program (less than 100 Kb) that enables the AODocs Smartbar to launch Microsoft Office on your computer, when you open a Word, Excel or PowerPoint file from the Google Drive user interface via the AODocs Smartbar.
This client is for Windows. macOS users don't need to install the AODocs WebDAV client to use this feature.
Opening a Microsoft Office file
For Microsoft Windows users, if the AODocs WebDAV client is not installed when you click the Open file button in Google Drive, a pop-up will ask you to download it.
