Show notes without tags

Notes without tags are low quality notes for me. I would love to find those low quality notes. A plugin that would show me all notes without tags would be great. Bear has this as well.

You could do a regex-search for -/#\w+/ (it says: exclude files which contain # directly followed by a word)

Great idea! I had to tweak the regex to -/#[a-z]\w+/, though, since notes referring to the #1 thing you need to do will otherwise get falsely considered to have tags. :wink:

Another weird trick you can do: if you start all your tag names with /, then searching for -tag:# will actually work. (It’d be nice if Obsidian’s search just took -tag: or -tag:# to mean “find untagged”, though.)

This community plugin works well.

you can also use dataview like this

```dataview
List 
From "" 
WHERE length(file.tags) = 0
SORT file.mtime desc ```
