What is a .VDW file?

VDW files are technical drawings, such as process diagrams or flowcharts, created by Microsoft Visio to be viewed in a web browser. The files may contain multiple pages, hyperlinks, and connections to external data sources. Visio users primarily create VDW files to share them with other users for viewing in a web browser, like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Since VDW files store technical drawings, you will most likely only encounter the files in business settings. For example, you may receive a VDW file from a co-worker as an email attachment. If you do, you can open and view the VDW web drawings with File Viewer Plus. You can also use the program to convert the drawings to JPEG, PNG, or PDF formats.
