What is a VSD file?

Files that contain the .vsd file extension are associated with Microsoft's Visio software application. These files are created when a user saves a document that has been created with the Visio software.

The Microsoft Visio application is a commercial diagramming application that allows users to create a wide range of flowcharts, work flow diagrams, organization charts and other documents which illustrate organization structures, systems, resources and business processes.

Shapeware Corporation initially developed the Visio application in 1992. The software was later purchased by Microsoft in 2000. Unlike many of the other Microsoft business applications, Visio is not included in the Microsoft Office suite of software products.
