Question Searching Tags

Hi I feel a bit silly asking this but I am a little unsure how to search for certain tags. I know you can click the column and it will sort according to the first tag, but I was wondering if there is something with a drop down menu that lets you choose from the tags you have.

When you enter tags it lets you add as many as you want... yet I can't seem to find a way to search for them the same way you can add them.
<---like that.

I found a webpage that shows a search feature to the left that I don't have http://blog.calibre-ebook.com/2011/1...g-browser.html
but my calibre is a much newer version than that one.

Thanks for any help,
Pep

In the Tag brwswer:
Multi select, the same as you use with your O/S

Click the first:
Hold (and hold) the control-key: click each one yo want (A Green + will appear)
click again and a Red - will appear, meaning 'but NOT'. Click till no marks to change your mind on that item
Once selected, launch the search as normal

At the bottom of the Tag Browser, there is a button 'Alter Tag Browser'
Set the search type (before ) to All (must be ) or Any

theducks: If you read the original post carefully, it sounds like MzPepper is missing the tag browser.

MzPepper: If you move your mouse to the left side of the Calibre window, does the mouse pointer turn to a left+right arrow? If so, hold down the mouse button and drag to the right to open the tag browser. Then you can follow the instructions from theducks for searching multiple tags at once.

You are correct

Alternate way, ther is a Luggage Tag in the lower Right corner that should also open the tag browser. Calibre has many ways to get from here to there

Shift+Alt+T will toggle the display of the Tag Browser

The other bottom left icon/buttons have similar keyboard shortcuts,

Shift+Alt+D toggles the Book Details (sidebar variant),
Shift+Alt+B toggles the Cover Browser (carousel),
Shift+Alt+G toggles the Cover Grid,
Shift+Alt+J toggles the Jobs List.

BR
