In the review section, I am under the first questions tab. I selected one of my favorite tags asp.net 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 asp.net 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.

  • Yes that works and also we can remove &tag=asp.net-mvc from the URL, but I feel that this is definitely a needed feature.

  • 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. Nov 25, 2011 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.

  • @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?

  • It might be bad design, but it's still a viable solution.
