How to Insert and Edit Tags in Word Documents

Users can insert tags, key phrases, to MS Word docs for better management and organization. Users can insert custom tags in their documents either prior to or subsequent to creating the document. If you just save the Word document, you will see that it does not contain any tag. You need to follow some steps to insert tags.
Tags are very handy, as they help with organization. For example, if you are a writer and are searching for an article on your computer, then you no longer have to remember the exact title of the document to locate it. You can add relevant tags to your document and make it easier to locate documents.
For instance, if you are a magazine editor and have several articles in your computer, and all of them have obscure or similar document names such as article.docx, article1.docx, etc. When you urgently need to locate a lifestyle article, then you can look in the folder for lifestyle to locate the files you have tagged with lifestyle.
