How to open VSS files

Did your computer fail to open a VSS file? We explain what VSS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a VSS file?

VSS files are Microsoft Visio Stencil files, which you can read more about below.

The VSS file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a VSS opener may not be able to open all kinds of VSS files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
