File extension .WMZ
|Windows Media Player Compressed Skins Format||Microsoft||Settings Files|
The WMZ file type is a compressed Skin file used in Windows Media Player. Skin files contain the graphics and layout information used to personalize the look and feel of the media player. This format is a compressed version of the standard WMP Skin file, but is still compatible with WMP. The file type (.wmz) is created by compressing the original WMP Skin file (.wms) using a compression format such as Zip or gzip. This allows users to easily share their custom Skin files with others.
A WMZ file, known as Compressed Windows Media Player Skin, is an archive containing all of the related design data for a given Windows Media Player ‘skin’. A skin is an alternate user interface or ‘look and feel’ for the application, and can be created and modified by the user or downloaded from other sources. Such skins can include images, sound effects, window backgrounds and fonts, among other assets.
The WMZ filetype supports this functionality by compressing all of the skin data using similar formats such as Zip or gzip. This makes it much easier to share skins online or via email, as they take up less space than the equivalent ‘uncompressed’ WMS variant. Other similar compressed formatted used for sharing skin files online are XZP, WMC, and WMX.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .WMZ) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .WMZ extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .WMZ file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .WMZ extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .WMZ extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .WMZ file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .WMZ file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .WMZ file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .WMZ file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .WMZ file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
