We sometimes receive attachment files and documents with unfamiliar file extensions on our emails or other messaging apps. When we open them like we usually do, it is often not working. One example is the file with .emz extension.
An EMZ file is a Windows Compressed Enhanced Metafile that contains images or graphic data. You can use the format in Microsoft applications like PowerPoint, Word, and Visio. However, you can also use and open the file on your Macos computer.
How Do I Open an EMZ File on Mac or PC?
You can open an EMZ file both on your Windows 10 PC and on Mac computer. We have compiled free, simple and easy ways to do it. Check out the different methods below and follow the steps one at a time.
Method #1 – Check Suggestions from Your Computer
Sometimes, your computer already has an application that can open EMZ Files.
- All you have to do is highlight the file.
- Right-click or double-click on it.
- Select Open With. Your computer will fetch suggestions where you can open the file.
- Click an application and see if it works.
Method #2 – Insert the File in Pictures
- Launch Microsoft Word on your Mac or Windows PC.
- On the Menu bar, click the Insert tab.
- Select Pictures.
- Now, look for your EMZ file and double-click to insert it.
- Once done, you can now see the content on the file, properly rendered inside your Word document.
Method #3 – Use a Third-Party Software
You can find online third-party apps that will help you open EMZ files on your computer. However, some tools only allow you to view the contents of the file and not edit it. Check out XnView MP and Quick View Plus to get started.
Method #4 – Extract the File
EMZ File is a compressed image as we have mentioned above. That means you can try extracting it to open the content of the archive. You can use popular extracting tools like WinZip for Mac and Windows, 7-Zip on Windows 10, or other file extraction tools you might already be using.
Method #5 – Convert the File
If you cannot extract or open the file using the different extraction tools, another way is to convert it to another file extension. You can use image converter tools and change the file to PNG or JPG formats. By then, you can easily open them in your Macos or Windows 10 computer.
