I want to move away from Google, but before that, I would like to backup my documents in my GDrive. I unfortunately have a lot of Google Docs/Slides/Sheets, which won't be usable anymore if I stop using Google. Is there a way to convert them all into Microsoft Office Doc/Powerpoint/Excel files?

If I open them individually, I can save them as docx/pptx/xlsx, But I'm looking for an automated solution for all of my files.
