I would like to set up a link from a cell to open an Explorer window and search for tags that match the cell's contents.
An example would be:

1. Click a cell that reads "Golf".
2. An Explorer window opens and automatically searches for any files tagged with the word "Golf".

I already have a link to open the Explorer window, but I would like it to do an automatic search for me.
There are 4 people in my office that would use this a lot, and it would be much easier than opening an Explorer window and typing "tag:golf" in the search box.
(Especially since some of the tags are rather long, like "porte cochere"!)

Thanks for any suggestions!
