How to Remove Tags on Mac?

You can also remove an unnecessary tag. In order to delete an unnecessary tag, click it in the “Tags” field and press the Delete key. In fact, this action will not remove the tag, just macOS will no longer use it for this document. If you really want to remove the tag from the computer:

  • Open the pop-up menu Finder -> Settings -> Tags;
  • Select the tags you want to remove;
  • Click Delete (minus icon).


You can tag various documents with color tags, for example, photos that need to be edited, drafts, saved articles for reading at the weekend, videos, etc., this function is not very useful, but it is incredibly convenient.

It’s the best time to ask questions and give us your feedback in comments.
