Windows Vista has its own built-in tagging option for some file types, but it doesn't work for all types of files

If you have a growing trove of files and you're becoming comfortable using tags in other programs, Taggtool could help you manage your data. But you'll need to be willing to take the time to manually assign tags to everything.
Price$ 40.48 (AUD)
If you're getting hooked on tags for things like your browser bookmarks or your email, Taggtool takes it one step further. This utility, which offers a 30-day free trial, allows you to assign tags to all your Windows XP or Vista files.
Windows Vista has its own built-in tagging option for some file types, and you can add tags when you save an Office document, for example. But it doesn't work for all types of files; basic text files get left out, as do others.
By contrast, Taggtool doesn't integrate with other programs, and you can't use it to assign a tag when you save any given file. Instead, it sits on its own and runs from the system tray, and keeps all its tags and file information in its own database.
To assign a tag, you can either right-click a file and choose "Add Tags", or you can bring up the Taggtool program window where you can add one or more tags to multiple files at once. You're then able to search those tags from the program window, or using a search widget that displays be default at the top of your screen.
Search results display quickly, and you can filter by file type (such as images, Microsoft Office, or Audio), or use hierarchical tags such as doc.work or doc.home to help organise things. Plugins allow for previewing some files, such as .pdf's or audio files.
The Java-based Taggtool offers many options, such as integrating with Del.icio.us or defining particular programs you can then use to open any selected file in search results. You can also use it to create a backup of all your tagged files. But you probably won't be able to figure out what everything does without a trip to the app's online help.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
