So What is a tag? A tag is a non-hierarchical keyword or term assigned to a piece of information (such as an internet bookmark, digital image, or computer file). This kind of metadata helps describe an item and allows it to be found again by browsing or searching.
Portable Taggtool is a small desktop search tool which locates your files based on keyword metadata.
Tagging was popularized by websites associated with Web 2.0 and is an important feature of many Web 2.0 services. We have developed a Windows based utility which brings the tagging paradigm to the desktop.
Up until now the traditional method of finding a file was based around remembering where exactly the file lived on your computer or knowing at least some part if not all of the file name to perform a search for it.
With Taggtool you simply need to remember roughly what the file is about, for instance an insurance quote file could be tagged as 'insurance, travel, quote'. The file can then be viewed by simply entering one or more of the tags associated with it into the Taggtool search widget.
