    Hello folks!

    Please refer to the enclosed pictorial description & help suggest on the relevance of these extensions which comes pre-loaded with every afresh installation of Google chrome?

    How come these constitute an indispensable bundling with Google Chrome? How actually are these put to use in a Real-time web browsing experience?

    What if we decide to get rid of all of these? How will it affect our experience or impact the core functioning of Google chrome?

    Does it make any difference with or without these? I mean, why carry an extra load all the time?

    Why not bid these a permanent Goodbye on Google Chrome's installation?

    Inputs will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    They are used to make accessing Google Docs offline more consistent with a normal desktop experience/application.

    if you use/need them, keep them.
    otherwise, remove them.

    is there a bigger issue than that?

      The point is - even if need these, how can these be put to use in a conspicuous way?One would normally expect a drop-down menu at the toolbar of the web-browser (similar to other browser extensions) to facilitate the creation of a new doc, spreadsheet or a slide OR access the ones already stored in the Google drive!

      But there is nothing of that sort !?

      So how can I see these in action? i.e. performing in  Real-time?

        So I need to have certain docs, spreadsheets or slides stored under my local Google Drive to experience how these function?
        Are these designed/meant to work in conjunction with the contents stored within our local Google Drive?
        Are the contents of our local Google Drive end up opening within Google Chrome when in Offline state?
        Thanks for your patience.

        When you have one of the apps open you can use the Settings->More Tools->Add To Desktop to utilize the extensions.
