          Thanks to great broadband speeds, most of us are rapidly turning into download freaks. It is, after all, eminently
easy now to search and get hold of all the content you want from the Internet. Books, music, movies, images, apps – you can
download almost anything that catches your fancy. But, have you ever considered how frustrating it can be to locate a single file
out of those thousands that you have downloaded and stored in your PC?
Let us face it – with an ever-growing content trove lying in your system, finding a specific file that you may require in a hurry
is as difficult as finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. And that is precisely why you need TaggTool, a great application that
allows you to organise files of any genre – from Word documents to music and movie files and even entire folders. Once the
application is downloaded and installed, you will have access to some excellent filters for searching through your files at an
impressively fast speed. The application comes with its own database to store the tags and all other relevant information.

          To install TaggTool, go to http://www.taggtool.com and click on ‘Download’ which is prominently
displayed in the middle of the website. The file is a light one (just 7.6 MB) and takes only a couple of minutes to download.
TaggTool is free during the 30 days of trial period, at the end of which you will have to pay a fee to continue enjoying its
benefits. Once the installation is over, open the programme and you will find the ‘Tag Files/Folders’ icon on the home
screen. Click on it to browse through your system and pick up the files to be tagged. You can suggest as many
tags as you want for each of the files you choose. For instance, if you have chosen the
latest track from AR Rahman, you can tag it as ‘Bollywood, Rahman AR’ or any other tag of your
choice. The tags that you suggest will be saved automatically. So, the next time you want to find the file, all
you need to do is to make a quick search using the TaggTool programme.

        An easier way to tag files is to right-click on them and choose the option ‘Add Tags’. It is not
  necessary for you to specify any tag element. You can simply choose the document and add it to the
  TaggTool programme, and it will match your search criteria against the tag title, file name and file path.
  Tagging or adding individual files can be a time-consuming and frustrating process. So the tool allows you
  to add and update/remove multiple tagged files by shift- selecting the items in the ‘Tag Files and Search
  Database’ screens. As the TaggTool uses the keyword or the term defined by the user to look for the files, it
  turns out to be quite efficient. Then there is a TaggTool desktop widget that can be added and used to
  conduct your searches without the least hassle. At present, the programme works seamlessly on Windows-
  powered systems (Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7). But in the near future, we can expect
  variants that will be compatible with other popular operating systems like the Mac and the Linux.
