Adding Comments to Microsoft Files (and more) in Google Drive

Drive Collaboration Header

Google has added a new feature to Google Drive! You can now add comments to Microsoft Office files, PDFs, images, and other files types stored in Drive. The best part? You don’t even have to convert the files to a Google file type first!

Adding a comment works just like it does for a Google Doc or Sheet:

  1. In Drive, double-click the file you want to comment on.
  2. Select the Add comment button at upper-right.
  3. Select the text or cell you want to comment on.
  4. Enter the comment and select Comment.

Comments will show up in the Drive preview pane and can be replied to just like other comments.

For more information on commenting on Microsoft files in Drive, visit Google’s website or contact the Help Desk at (208) 426-4357 or
