What is a VSD file?

A VSD file is a drawing project saved by Visio, a program used to create business diagrams. It may contain visual objects, information flows, text, and other data. VSD files may also store connection information for imported data sources.

More Information

Visio drawings allow users to visualize and communicate complex information. They can be used to create flowcharts, workflow diagrams, organizational charts, software diagrams, network diagrams, and database models.

VSD files can be viewed with the Microsoft Visio Viewer program (vviewer.exe).

NOTE: The VSD format was replaced by the .VSDX format in Visio 2013.

Open and view .VSD files with File Viewer Plus.
