Great question!!! I want to add that even though the suggestions below give a solution, I think it would be a good idea to make it more straight-forward, such as allow one to click on the interesting tags there and get the unanswered questions for that tag. –  Vivi Jun 11 '10 at 16:55

Go to the unanswered page, scroll down and look to the tagged links in the right sidebar.

Otherwise, you can add your tag to the end of the following URL:

http://stackoverflow.com/unanswered/tagged/

But there are only the 25 most used tags listed. How can I get others? –  Svante Nov 19 '08 at 1:33
    
@Harleqin: Edited my answer to show how. –  Bill the Lizard Nov 19 '08 at 1:39

Search for '[C#] or [CSS]', then click on Unanswered to find all questions for any topic you think you could answer.

For more info see: Stack Overflow tag filtering

You can now also use the advanced search box like so:

[tag] answers:0

Which translates to a URL of:

http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=%5Btag%5D+answers%3A0

Take note of URL encoding, such as this search or items with the tag, but no answers:

http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=%5Bc%23%5D+answers%3A0

Try using /unanswered/tagged/c# (which is c%23 because of url-limitations).

Go to the unanswered questions page and choose the c# tag from the list of tags on the right.

That feature doesn't seem to be working quite yet. I hope they get it fixed soon. –  Bill the Lizard Oct 25 '08 at 20:06
    
...and sometimes to all unanswered questions. –  Bill the Lizard Oct 25 '08 at 20:08
    
It's working for me. Remember the unaswered list contains questions with no upvoted answers - not just questions with no answers at all. –  user27414 Oct 25 '08 at 20:27
    
It's working only when in the right side selected the "newest" or "votes" tab, but not the "mytags" tab. –  Roma May 19 '09 at 18:26
  1. At the top of the page click on "Unanswered" to go to the unanswered page.
  2. In the upper right hand corner of the page click on either "Newest" or "Votes".
  3. Now, scroll down and click the tag you wish to view from the list under "Unanswered Tags" (you cannot use the tags listed under "Ignored Tags" or "Interesting Tags").

You should now see the unanswered questions with the tag you chose. if you do not, read on.

This is really confusing. There are several questions about it with the same answer and at first I thought they were all wrong. However, it does work. Here is the key: You have to make sure that in the upper right hand corner either "Newest" or "Votes" is clicked. If the "My Tags" tab is clicked it will not work correctly.

The last paragraph helped me. I don't know HOW they managed to make such a SIMPLE functionality so hard! –  drozzy May 26 '09 at 17:22
