File Extension EMF

.EMF File

File extension: EMF
File type: Extended (Enhanced) Windows Metafile Format


Notes about the EMF file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The EMF file type is primarily associated with 'Extended (Enhanced) Windows Metafile Format'.

Enhanced metafiles provide true device independence. You can think of the picture stored in an enhanced metafile as a snapshot of the video display taken at a particular moment. This snapshot maintains its dimensions no matter where it appears--on a printer, a plotter, the desktop, or in the client area of any application.

A number of programs attempt to capture this file extension.

(Added short IDs: MetafileCompanion32.EnhancedMetafile, SlowView EMF)
