What is a .VSS file?

VSS files are stencil files that store one or more shapes, objects, or connectors that users can add to a drawing created in Microsoft Visio. When users create and save custom stencils, Visio creates a VSS file to store the stencils. When a user wants to add stencils in the VSS file to their drawings, they can open the VSS file in Visio and import the objects. Some examples of these stencils include arrows, circles, or boxes.

You will most likely only encounter a VSS file if you are looking to import custom stencils into your technical drawing, whether it be a flowchart or another type of diagram. If a co-worker sends you a VSS file with stencils, you can open and view the stencils with File Viewer Plus.
