Tags in Windows Explorer details pane

I was wondering if there is a way to do a search in Fileseek that looks specifically for tag words in Windows without pulling in everything else? I have been assigning tags to some of my CAD files, but it seems that Windows doesn't really use tags outside of certain media formats. This would be very helpful, if I could get something like this working. In Windows 10, tags can be set in the Explorer details pane, or under the properties dialog for the file.

There isn't currently, but I've added this to our feature request list. If we're able to add a tag search in a future version, we'll be sure to post an update here :)

It's now more than 5 years from last post on this question, and I can't se/find anything about it.
It would be VERY interesting to be able to search using TAGS. Consider the following scenario:
- a folder of images
- inside it lot of subfolders, containing each images from a specific grouping (may date, or any other thing you can imagine)
- each single file with a few tags added, let's say "names of person in the image", "place where picture was taken", and so on, and the sky is the limit.
When doing a search you can specify, as an example, "tag:Peter" (one of the person's names), so you will find all images where tag contains that name, without the assle to duplicate each file to archive it in a folder for time, a differnt folder for peter, and so on.
I've found some interestin info to read at the following links:

Hoping to find some solution.

Hi Luigi,

This isn't something we've added in, but it is still open on our feature request list, so I've added your vote to it.
