Well this is exactly why I use dropbox.
Sometimes google drive will be fine, ie copy the file to your normal folder
and open it, but increasingly it was becoming a pain, having to somehow use
open with etc as if windows had changed the default program when trying to
get stuff from Google. On dropbox its really just another folder of course
and there is no issue.

Dropbox also has a application, similar to google drive, that makes a
local folder a replicated version of the items online.

Given how Windows is normally friendly to installing anything it
socially breezes across, you probably didn't notice the installation.
