A file with the EMZ extension is a compressed image file, more precisely a Windows Compressed Enhanced Metafile.

These file types are actually only GZIP compressed EMF files, a graphical format used by Microsoft applications such as Visio, Word and PowerPoint.

An EMZ file is a compressed image used by Microsoft programs such as Visio and the Office suite. It contains an improved metafile (.EMF file) that has been compressed using the.GZIP compression algorithm.

How to open EMZ files?

If no program opens the EMZ file, it is likely that no application is installed to view and/or modify the EMZ files. You can use your favorite search engine to download and check a third-party program.

Opening an EMZ file in MS Office

1. Open an MS Office program such as Word or PowerPoint.
2. Open an empty or new document.
3. Click on Insert. A drop-down menu appears.
4. Click on Image. Your file browser is loaded.
5. Access your EMZ file.
6. Double-click to open the file.

The EMZ file is inserted into the document as an image. You cannot change it.

Extract EMZ File with 7-Zip

These files can be extracted using utilities such as 7-Zip. However, it cannot be executed with 7-Zip because it is only an archiver.

Still can’t open your file?

The most likely reason not to open your file as an EMZ file with the above programs is that it is not really an EMZ file. You can check this by looking at the file extension.

For example, it is easy to confuse EMZ files and EML files because their extensions are very similar. However, an EML file is an email file that is used by some email clients to store an email message – it is not linked to EMZ files.

Similarly, EMI files that already look a lot like EML files can be confused with EMZ files even if they are used by the Pocket Tanks game.

The same applies to any file format that uses a similar suffix, such as EMY for eMelody ring tone files. These files may look like EMZ files, but they cannot be opened with the same programs and require a text editor or the Awave Studio program instead.

If your file does not really end with”.EMZ”, search Google for the file extension (or search here on Lifewire) to find out which programs you can open or convert.
