Yesterday I reinstalled Snow Leopard because Yosemite is too heavy for my MacBook. How can I get the tags section on the Finder sidebar on OS X 10.8.5 like Mavericks or Yosemite?

  • Snow Leopard is 10.6. 10.8.5 is Mountain Lion. What version of OS X are you using exactly? (@Buscar Neither of these OSes support Finder tags)

Finder tags were introduced in Mavericks (10.9).
They're not available in earlier versions of OS X.
