    How do I clean out File;Properties;Details;Tags dropdown lists

    I have over the last year or so populated this dropdown with many entries that I now want to remove. I see how to do it file by file (thanks to your tutorials) but would like to reset/clear out these dropdown lists to start again.
    Many thanksClick image for larger version.

    Hi, never noticed that before- but I don't bother with tags, so I'll tag along to see what happens.

    My list makes little sense. Its content is not:
    a. in the registry as text
    b. some autocomplete list I recognise
    c. file names
    d. things I've searched for
    e. all immediately familiar to me - i.e. from some other source
    f. in other tag data

    Some do contain some terms I'm familiar with - others not at all.
    Example: aapl -> nasdaq:aapl
    - no idea why.

    I'm wondering if this is related to the Windows search index - content search phrases
