You're welcome, it works great for me.

Regardless, from what I can see, any tag is buried among all the other tags i.e. doesn't stand alone on the left side, as is the case with, say, "Authors" i.e. maybe I'd like a collection on the left side that organizes books for "Children's".
The links I sent you to primarily dealt with managing user categories via a custom column and had little if anything to do with tags in the tags column.

As explained in the links you can create your own custom column that acts likes tags and will show up in the tag browser. But I am stuck an not able to see your vision.

I don't think you are missing much I think I may be missing exactly what you are trying to accomplish. I'm going to step back and let someone else have a shot at providing you with the answer you seek.
