Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In the review section, I am under the first questions tab. I selected one of my favorite tags mvc to see the first questions in that tag. So I was able to see one question.


Now I want to go back to all the first questions. So I want to remove the tag-filter mvc.

I do not see any obvious method to do this. I would like to know if there is a way to do this. If not, I would like to suggest implementing a simple x button like what we have for favorite tags, near the red arrow shown in above image.

fav tags

One option is to click the review link again. – Aziz Shaikh Nov 25 '11 at 13:44
Yes that works and also we can remove & from the URL, but I feel that this is definitely a needed feature. – Nanda Nov 25 '11 at 13:47
I agree, its a nice to have. Modifying querystring would be considered a workaround but clicking the link again is a valid option, I guess. – Aziz Shaikh Nov 25 '11 at 13:50

Remove the &tag=[tag] part at the end of the URL.

I have mentioned this in the comments. Modifying the querystring is unintuitive for not-so-technical users. – Nanda Nov 25 '11 at 13:59
@KishorNanda: Not-so-technical users? On Stack Overflow? :) – Ryan O'Hara Dec 25 '11 at 14:22
@minitech: Haha, you are correct. But still modifying a querystring should not a way to do something, except when development, isn't it? Any operation exposed through UI would be a lot better, right? – Nanda Dec 25 '11 at 14:30
It might be bad design, but it's still a viable solution. – Al E. Dec 25 '11 at 14:47
I agree that it is a viable solution. – Nanda Dec 25 '11 at 15:01
