.scz File Extension

File type: SmartDraw Collection Package File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .scz. Files with the file extension .scz can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .scz files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .scz file?

The SCZ file extension is a data file that is saved by SmartDraw. This software is a professional diagramming program that consists of a stack of SmartDraw files that are used to save a group of files together. An example would be images and SDR files that work to maintain reference links to hyperlinks, local files and remote files. Directories that consist of SmartDraw file assets are collection packages which are also known as a collection of archives. Once the Collection is active, the user can now export a collection package. All these commands can be found under the SmartDraw application menu. Aside from SmartDraw, other applications that make use of SCZ file extension are Wingz and OPENLiMiT, however these two are not as popular as SmartDraw.

how to open a .scz file?

Launch a .scz file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .scz file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .scz files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .scz file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .scz file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .scz files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .scz. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
