The Windows File Explorer is a great tool for managing your files and folders. However it lacks the ability to tag files and folders in an easy and consistent way. Only some file types stored in Windows can be tagged. Tagging is only supported on images, documents, and videos. And, in some cases, even some supported file types may not allow tagging. Tagging of folders isn’t possible in the Windows File Explorer.
Tagging for Windows adds tagging to the Windows File Explorer. The tags will become an integral part of the Windows File Explorer. By using Tagging for Windows you can now tag any file and folder you want, with no exception.
After installing Tagging for Windows, 2 new parts become present in the Windows File Explorer. The new parts are the Tags node and the Tags pane.
In the Navigation pane the Tags node is added. Here you can create, rename and structure your tags. Tags are grouped into Tag Groups. You can create as many Tags and Tag Groups as you need.
When a Tag is selected all linked files and/or folders (and/or another Tags) are shown in the Folder View, just as if you select a Folder.
Under the Folder View the Tags pane is added. In this pane the linked Tags of a file or folder (or another Tag) is shown. For each Tag, its name and location within its Tag Group is shown. When multiple files and/or folders are selected, only the in common are shown.
