What is a .WMF file?

wmf file icon

WMF files are saved in a proprietary 16-bit graphic format developed by Microsoft in the 1990s. The format consists of a series of records, which contain graphics drawing commands and other image properties. The format was originally developed as the native vector format for Microsoft Office programs, then was replaced by the Enhanced Windows Metafile (EMF) format.

While WMF files are no longer commonly used to save graphics in Windows, you still may encounter old WMF files in Windows. You may also receive old WMF files from a friend, family member, or coworker. File Viewer Plus can open WMF files, as well as edit and convert them to other formats, such as JPEG, PNG, or GIF.
