What is a .VDW file?

vdw file icon

Microsoft Visio creates VDW files to store technical drawings, such as process diagrams and flowcharts, that can be viewed in a web browser. The files may contain multiple pages, hyperlinks, and connections to external data sources. The VSD format was introduced in the 1990s and is still used today. However, the format was replaced by the VSDX format as the primary file format for storing drawings with the release of Visio 2013.

Since VDW files store technical drawings, you will most likely only encounter the files in business settings. You may receive them from co-workers 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.
