Windows – How to open a .wmz extension file

windows media player

I got a .wmz file from my boss. It seems to be a Window Media Player file, but I don't know how to open this file. Or maybe it is something else. Please help.

  • To identify type of a file from its content (regardless its name) you can use the file utility.

    • Either download a standalone binary of an older version of the utility: File for Windows
    • Or perform a minimal installation of Cygwin and select also file during the installation.

    Usage:

    file the_file_to_check.wmz
