What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If I search for kiosk on StackOverflow, I get redirected to an empty tag. Instead, I would like the search results for the general term, kiosk.

Is there a way to force the search function to not redirect to a tag?

Search for the phrase "kiosk" (with the quotes) instead, as per the Search Options page.

You can also use the "force the word to be present" syntax: +kiosk.
