Question Searching for a book in my Calibre library/Tags

Why isn't there a search button in Calibre in which I can look for one of my books? I can sort, but that's slower.

Also, I tried sorting by tags, but that is useless if the tag I am looking for is not the first tag for the book. Or am I missing something? Are there other Search features available in Calibre?

I hides now unless you have the magnify glass button (bottom right) depressed.
The Tag Browser (tag button depressed) can find by (multi-)selecting choices on the Left ( I builds a search term for you)

@ChipAHoy - in the search bar there's gears icon - this brings up the "Advance Search" dialogue, it can help you create search terms.

You might also want to read the The search interface section of the user manual.

No Gear Button

I don't see the Gear icon or a search bar on my Calibre screen.

That because you've hidden the search bar. Click the layout button in the bottom right and unhide it.

I edited/shortened the quote above but @theducks did answer the missing search bar question in the initial reply.

Anything else you need a hand with?
