There is an option in KeePass - "Focus Entry List after a Successful Quick Search". It would be nice to have the same option for the tags system. So, you click the "Show Entries" button on the KeePass toolbar, which brings up a drop-down list. At the bottom of this list, are the tags you have used for various entries. When you click one of these, everything except for the entries with that tag is filtered out. However, the entry list does not have focus. You have to mouse click on it yourself.

    If you have more than one entry with the same tag you would have to click on the entry anyway and as you have the mouse at the ready, you used it to select the tag, it's simple to highlight the one you want.

    cheers, Paul

    If you have more than one entry with the same tag, than that is true. But the same limitation applies to the Quick Search, and the option is there for it. If a qucik search finds more than one entry, you still need to scroll through the multiple results to find the result you want, it is no different with tags.

    Besides, I only have one entry per tag (at least until this is implemented: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3559327&group_id=95013&atid=609911 - using tags with only one entry each is currently the only workaround I can find, so the option would be very helpful to me).
