Microsoft Visio is a diagramming and vector graphics application for Windows. Simplify and communicate complex information with data-linked diagrams that you can create in just a few clicks. Microsoft Visio makes diagramming simple. Whether you want to quickly capture a flowchart that you brainstormed on a whiteboard, map an IT network, build an organizational chart, document a business process, or draw a floor plan, MS Visio helps you work visually.

Create professional diagrams quickly
Get started with Visio easily with a select set of pre-crafted starter diagrams and contextual tips and tricks. Use smart shapes to boost productivity, and leverage new themes and effects to customize and complete professional-looking diagrams faster.

Bring diagrams to life with data linking
Connect data to the visualization of an organizational structure, IT network, manufacturing plant, or complex business processes to grasp performance in one glance. Visio shapes can be linked to multiple data sources including Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Excel Services, Active Directory, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SQL Azure, and Microsoft SharePoint Lists and Business Connectivity Services. Use data graphics such as icons, colors, and text to simplify and enhance the visualization of complex information. Take advantage of the new one-step connectivity with Excel tables and swap data graphics to your preference with one click.

Communicate one version of truth visually
Communicate and share your flow chart, timeline, process maps, organizational structure, IT architecture, or floor plan across the enterprise through a web browser with Visio Services in Office 365 or SharePoint. As your underlying data refreshes, your diagrams are refreshed in the browser. Work together on the same diagram at the same time and easily see reviewers' comments—in both Visio and Visio Services.

How to Use

Microsoft Visio is a powerful diagramming and flowcharting software that allows you to create professional-looking diagrams, flowcharts, and other visualizations. Here are the steps to use MS Visio on a PC:
  • Install Microsoft Visio on your PC/Laptop: If you don't already have Microsoft Visio installed on your computer, you can purchase it or obtain it through an Office 365 subscription.
  • Open MS Visio: You can find it in the Windows Start menu or by searching for "Microsoft Visio" in the Windows search bar.
  • Choose a template: When you open Visio, you will be prompted to choose a template for your diagram. There are many templates to choose from, including flowcharts, network diagrams, and organization charts.
  • Add shapes: To add shapes to your diagram, you can drag and drop them from the Shapes pane, or you can insert shapes from the stencils included with Visio.
  • Connect shapes: To connect shapes, click on the shape and drag to connect it to another shape. Visio will automatically create a connector between the shapes.
  • Add text: To add text to a shape, simply double-click on the shape and type in your text. You can also format text, add images, and more.
  • Save and export your diagram: Once you've finished creating your diagram, you can save it to your PC by clicking on "File" and "Save As." You can also export your diagram to other file formats, such as PDF or PNG.
