An MD file is a MuseData musical score. It contains plain text code that represents a piece of music, as well as metadata describing that work. While MD files are no longer widely used, you can still open them and use them to create sheet music in MuseScore.

You can open an MD file in MuseScore. To do so, select File → Open from the program's menu bar, and then locate and open your MD file. Note that you may receive an error message saying your MD file is corrupted. If you do, click Ignore. The MD file will appear in MuseScore as a musical score.

If you need only to see the plain text notation that an MD file contains, you can open it in any text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad, Apple TextEdit, or Github Atom.
