Using Temporary Finder Tags To Gather Files

Tags are useful for many things. One idea is to use them to flag files to gather them together for a single use without moving the files from the folders where they reside. For instance, you may want to gather together files to send to someone or save a copy to an archive.

    That was a great video. It would be nice if you could tag files say Orange Quilt Show, or green Golf Outing or yellow Grandkids.

    Peter: You can. In Finder, Preferences, Tags, you can add more and rename existing tags. I'll do a new general video on using Tags soon.

    Bert: Did you simply try adding new ones? Just add a new one and see what happens.

    Fantastic! Never knew about using the tag function in this way. Very useful!
