.EMZ File Extension

Windows Compressed Enhanced Metafile

Compressed File
Files with an .EMZ extension are compressed (zipped) EMF formatted image files. This format was created by Microsoft to be used in their programs such as Microsoft Word and Visio.

The EMZ format is identical to Microsoft's EMF format (Enhanced MetaFile) except that is uses GZIP compression. If you simply wish to decompress these files, you'll need a GZIP compatible decompression utility (such as GZIP itself).

Narinder - You could try using Visio or WinZip to open the file. Not sure though, let us know if you have any success.

Biju - I've no idea, sorry.

I have found that you can copy then paste an emz file into Word (2003) and it will open

EMZ files are GZip emf file. You should be able to open it using a ZIP uncompresser and then extract the content into an emf file. Then you should be able to view the emf file in any image viewer.

I have found that you can copy then paste an emz file into Word (2003) and it will open. This trick worked. Just copy the .emz file using Ctrl + C, Open word and use Ctrl + V (Paste)

Simplest way? Drag the .EMZ file from it's folder onto a blank word document and the file will appear as an inserted image.

Talbs instruction's worked. Thanks.

Paste the .emz file on your desktop. Then open the word 2003 document. Copy the file .emz from the desktop & paste on the opened word (2003) document. It may also work with word 2007.
