Do you think tag clouds are the best way to explore a topic? Some people prefer tag clouds over traditional search options since they let you think find things based on general categories instead of exact keywords. Now I happen to think that Windows Search does a pretty good job at finding the files I need on my PC (and now, in Windows 7, in finding things on the internet too!). However, a file tagging application called TaggedFrog might be fun to play around with on an older PC – like XP or Vista, for example.
TaggedFrog lets you add tags to your Windows files and it then displays them in a tag cloud so you can visualize and find content on your PC. You can add as many tags to your files as you want. If you have too many files to tag manually, you might want to try the Auto Scan and Tag feature instead.
TaggedFrog seems like a quick and easy way to find files on your computer without having to use a folder/subfolder structure to organize them. I have to admit, though, I didn’t install it on my laptop. I’m pretty picky about what I download onto my Windows 7 PC and since TaggedFrog says it’s Vista/XP only, I didn’t want to risk it. If you try it out, let me know what you think!
