Metafile Companion also supports "drag and drop". You can open a metafile by dragging its document icon from Explorer and dropping it onto a running copy of Metafile Companion.

Metafile Companion is registered with Windows to open files with the .WMF and .EMF extensions.

Once you have opened the file, you can add, select, edit and delete objects. For more information, see How to Add Objects, How to Select Objects, How to Edit Objects, and How to Delete Objects.
