What are EMZ files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening an EMZ file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is an EMZ file?

The files that contain the .emz file extension are files that store compressed image files. These files are commonly referred to as Windows Compressed Enhanced Metafiles and they are used by a variety of different Microsoft applications.

An EMZ file is actually a compressed version of a Microsoft EMF file. This allows for easier distribution of the file online. When an EMF file is compressed using the .GZIP compression algorithm, it is then given the .emz file extension.

One the EMZ file has been uncompressed, the file's file extension normally reverts back to the standard .emf (enhanced metafile) file extension.
