WMF files can be created in several ways on Microsoft Windows systems:
- Most applications support WMF and/or EMF in their Save As or Export menus.
- Ever since Office 2003, you can select graphics, in an application right-click on them, choose Save as Picture… and then select Windows Enhanced Metafile.
- In earlier Office versions, you could copy graphics to the clipboard and use VBA routines to save them as WMF or EMF disk files.
- If you are a software developer, you can feed your GDI display or print code directly to the META FLY library or save them as WMF or EMF files first.
