Description The .vsd file extension is the default file type associated with Microsoft Visio, a graphic drawing application which forms part of the Microsoft Office product set. As with several other Microsoft file formats, the .vsd extension cannot be read by many other applications. Examples of drawings typically created using Visio are flowcharts, process diagrams and topology diagrams.

Technical Details .vsd files may contain text, objects and can link to other data sources using the ODBC middleware connection. Whilst the Visio application is relatively expensive, Microsoft offer a freeware application, Microsoft Visio Viewer which allows for .vsd files to be opened effectively in read-only mode. Visio files can also be opened using Microsoft Internet Explorer.
