When I do a "Save As" in Word 2010 under Windows 7, I get a field appearing on the right that says Tags   Add a Tag.

What does that do?  What is a tag?  why should I add them?

Tags go into the properties of the document (Word Document in this case) and facilitate searching. Tags are included indexing.

Do you need to add them?  That is up to you. I don't use them much because when I index, I include Content in the indexing for Word and like documents. Content searching is more powerful than Tags.

It is a preference, and they are there for you to use. No harm done either way at all.
