    An East Way to Add, Copy and Manage Tags for Files?


    I am on build 1909.

    I have tens of thousands of photos and videos I would like to add tags for. I have a couple of main questions:

    • The process for adding tags (right click on file, click properties, click details, navigate to tags, start typing) is a little cumbersome when talking about thousands of files. It's a lot of mouse movement and clicking. Is there an easy, basically one-click method to managing tags? Perhaps a keyboard or other shortcut, or an app that open the tag function in one click, something like that?
    • Is there any way of copying just the tag information from one file to another?
    I have googled around and am coming up dry, so I know it's a long shot, but I thought I would ask in here because who knows, maybe someone knows of something quick and easy.

    Thanks.

    :)

    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one

    Clear the 'cache' in file explorer for already used picture tags?


    If you set some tags for your *.jpg pictures, the windows 10 file explorer shows them in the "details pane" on the right side.

    This list can get very long and with some wrong or no longer used entries.
    How can I clear this list / cache / suggestions?

    Or how can I stop the file explorer to suggests already used Tags?
