Microsoft Office files stored on Google Drive will now directly open in Edit mode, Google announced on Tuesday. Until now, compatible Office files opened in the preview mode after double-clicking on them and users had to enable the edit mode manually by clicking a dedicated button.

Google says users will still be able to use the preview mode by right-clicking the file and selecting “Preview,” or by pressing ‘P’ on the keyboard while double-clicking the file.
