Adding a Tag to a File

One of the most hailed features of Windows Vista is the capability to add tags or keywords to files (and folders). Doing so gives you more options to search for the file; it also helps you group similar files. This task covers how to add a tag to a file.


1.gif Select the file you want to add a tag or keyword to. In the Details pane, you see the available properties, including tags that you can add.

2.gif Click in the Tags field and type the tag. The reminder text for tags will still appear, and a semicolon will be added automatically in case you want to add more than one tag. Continue typing all the tags you want to include.

3.gif Click the Save button. The tags are saved to the file properties.
