    I'm running Windows 8.1. When I save a document in Word 2013 and I begin to enter a tag I use often ("Public Speaking"), Word suggests a short list of tags as I type. That list contains the tag "public speaking anxiety" (with four spaces between "public" and "speaking"). I'd like to replace any occurrences of that ill-begotten tag, but using Windows Explorer when I try to search for these files using SearchTools>OtherProperties>Tags the search only considers the first word of the tag, and treats any parts after the space as another search element. Help please? How can I locate these files so I can change their tags?

    And while we're at it, do I need to use dashes in tags instead of spaces? Spaces seem to work fine in Word's tagging system, but not in Windows.
