What is an EMZ file?

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

More Information

EMZ files may be decompressed with a GZIP decompression utility such as GNU zip (gzip.exe) or WinGZip. After decompression, they may be opened as standard EMF files.
