This question already has an answer here:

Can you set a file association in Internet Explorer to open .doc files in Google docs? I use a SaaS application with integrated email that only runs on IE and I would like to open file attachments with one click in Google Docs.

I've searched Google extensively and can't find an answer to this question, but I have to believe there is a way to do it.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


The functionality you want would require converting your doc URLS to work with Google Docs Viewer.

So you have to create a Google Docs Viwer Link using https://docs.google.com/viewer

Now Create the URL and associate it to open in Google Docs Viewer.


Let me know if you still have doubts.
