The same basic idea works for non-picture files (but not in Photo Gallery).
Select an icon (or a bunch), right-click and choose Properties, then click
the Details tab. If the file has a Tags property, you'll see it. But all the
properties you see are searchable. So you can stick a word in any editable
property and it'll still show up in a search.
You can also edit properties and tags through the Details pane. In any
folder, select an icon. Its properties and tags show up in the Details pane.
If the Details pane is too short to show them all, drag its upper border
upward. If the Details pane isn't there at all, click the Organize button
and choose Layout > Details pane.
With files that contain text it's not necessary to repeat a word that's
already in the file in a tag. An indexed search will fnd the file anyway,
tag or no tag. Likewise for other properties like Authors, Title, Subject,
Comments, Genre, Artists, and such. Any word you stick in one of those
properties you needn't repeat in a tag because the file will show up in a
