  2. tags or title for pictures / photos

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Title is used to get more information about the content, different documents will have different title.

    You can add same tags for documents with different title to group them to together, which will help in searching the file with same tags. I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to add tags or title to your image.

    Steps:


    1. Right click on the Image or photo you want to tag.
    2. Select Properties.
    3. Select Detail tab.
    4. Under Description section, select
      tags or title.
    5. Add your tags or title and click on
      Ok.

    Note: You can add more than one tag to the same image or photo.

    Hope it helps.

  3. Location of tags used

    I know how to tag files. Where can I find the list of tags I've used? I know I can create tags "on the fly" which is the problem. Now I have some mistakes and after clean up, need to remove the 'mistakes' from the list. They aren't assigned to any files,
    and as long as they are being auto-suggested I risk using them.

    Thank you

  4. How do I add tags to files?

    File tags

    I using win 10 build 17763. When adding tags in file explorer to a photo, if you have details view enabled, file explorer will show metadata on far right of screen. if you click on Tags: you can enter a tag. While typing, there is an auto-fill list that
    comes up you can use. I have added names and places to this list, but only one or two show up when I try to use them on the next photo. I'm hoping there is a Master List somewhere that I can edit. I don't know if it has a max size, and that is why my new tags
    are not being shown. Plus there is a lot of them that I don't use.

    Thanks- Larry
