If you have a lot of files in your Windows 10 computer, finding the right file can sometimes be a daunting task. However, there is a solution to make this process easier and more convenient – adding tags to your files. In this tutorial, we will show you how to add tags to files in Windows 10 to make them easier to find.

To add tags to your files, right-click on the file you want to tag and click on “Properties”. Then, click on “Details” and locate the “Tags” section. Here, you can add keywords to your file. For example, if you want to add the tag “my project” to your file, type it into the “Tags” section. You can also add multiple keywords to your file to make it even easier to find.

If you have files in the same category, make sure to use the same keywords for those files. For example, if you have a video file related to your project, use the same tag “my project” for that file as well.

To find your tagged files, simply type the tag in the search bar in Windows. For example, if you want to find the files tagged with “my project”, type “tag:my project” in the search bar. Windows will display all files with that tag, making it easy to find what you need.

Adding tags to files is a simple but effective way to organize your files and make them easier to find. Give it a try and see how it can improve your workflow.
