Integrate Google Docs Into Existing Folders With URL Shortcuts

We've featured a few ways to get Google Docs to sync to your desktop, but if you'd rather not use extra software, reader Sweens offers a very simple solution: Just save links to them in your Documents folder.

It won't sync automatically, but if you only use Google Docs for a few things here and there, it's hardly a pain:

Like most people, I have my document folders organised by category (e.g. personal finance, business, taxes, etc.). Working with Google Docs can be frustrating because you have to maintain two different document repositories.

Instead, try dragging URLs from your browser into the appropriate desktop folder. Voila, your Google Docs are integrated into your current filing system.

It's an insanely simple tip, and we're surprised we didn't think of it before. With just a few clicks, you can keep those cloud-based documents organised just the way you like them on your desktop. Do you have a different way of keeping your online and offline documents organised? Let us know in the comments.
