  • When you’re using other applications, Tags are still a valuable and easy way to access your files and folders. With most of these applications you have to interact with your files and folders, for example you need to open a document in a word processing application or an image in an image manipulation program. In all these situations it is helpful to have your tagged files available.



    Tagging for Windows not just integrates into the Windows File Explorer but also into commonly used Windows File Open dialog and File Save dialog. It is then becomes possible to access your Tags and linked files and folders. All tagging functions that are present in the Windows File Explorer, such as creating, renaming and structuring Tags, are also available in these dialogs.



    To open a tagged Word document you use the Open File dialog in Word and navigate to the tag structure, just as you would in the Windows File Explorer. You select the Tag you want to use and all linked files are shown in the dialog. Select the document you want to use and press the Open button or double-click the file. You don’t need to know the exact file location on your system Word will now open the document and treat it like any other file. This true for any other application that uses the Windows File Open dialog.



    To save a Word document you use the Save File dialog in Word and navigate to a tag that Is linked with the folder in which you want to save your Word document.
