To open files you need an app. If you were on a Chromebook your files were being opened by Google Docs and such.
Why not put them up in your Google drive and use Google Docs to open them like you did before?
Hi guys, so I have a problem and I can't seem to fix it. My flashdrive won't open my documents (google docs/slides) and I'm not sure why. I've tried checking the 'properties" of the files and then going to "tools" and making the computer 'error-check" the files, but the scan doesn't seem to work. A bit of background, I borrowed a chromebook from my school throughout the year, and since at the end of the year I had to return it, I didn't want all of my files on it ( didn't want people to steal my work or anything). So, I simply transferred all of my work on the chromebook over to my flashdrive and I thought I was set. Fast-forward to yesterday and I pull out my flashdrive because I need some essays to look over for my college applications and I try and open the files but they just won't open. I manually forced the files to open as a Word document, but all I got inside the doc was a URL that was useless. I'm lost and I need help, if possible. All of my essays, college lists, etc. are not opening and I would appreciate any help as soon as possible, thank you.
