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

What is a WMZ file?

The .wmz file extension is mainly associated with files that are being found in Windows Media Player. WMZ is a setting file format

that is commonly used to identify files used by Windows application that changes the application interface appearance. WMZ file is a

compressed ZIP archive that stores one or multiple Windows Media Player skin. WMZ can be also associated Javascript files that define

skin elements with accompanying supporting images that are added to the interface.

Corporation. WMZ format is the standard distribution format for Windows Media player skins. Double-clicking a .wmz file will prompt

the Windows System, especially Windows Media Player to open and ask the user if he want to install the skin to the player.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
