How to go about mounting VHDX Files that have snapshots

How do I go about opening the latest snapshot from a vhdx file that has multiple snapshots?

Is it just as simple as mounting the last file?

Deleting snapshots in hyper-V manager will merge the differencing disk back into the main disk file. But you obviously lose the ability to revert back to that snapshot. That's the trade-off. So have a backup.

You just have to merge before mounting. There is no other way.

These are from a decommissioned machine.

Do I need to add these all back into hyper-v?

You'll need the VM files, not just the vhd files. And you'll need to import the VM. Otherwise it won't know about the snapshots.
