It would really simplify my life if I could set specific folders -- or even every folder, by default -- to automatically sort folder content by tag (bullet color in the filename list).
This doesn't seem to be possible in MacOS itself.

Is there a way to do it in MacOS?
And if not, if there a utility that would make it possible?

I'm currently running 10.12.6 but will probably upgrade to the latest OS in the near future.

Thanks.

Kind of backwards, but you could create smart folders that reports on the existing tags you have. double the work kinda

Folder actions would be quite a kludge, I suspect, and not really save me any mouseclicks.

Thanks, but I'll keep hoping.
