I'm a mac so it is a bit different than PC. I can tag my folders directly (can you do that on PC? I can't remember)... I'm using the preview as the folder icon which makes a huge difference for me. I then go to bridge and keep it open while I am working. It's a work in progress. You can see what the folder usually looks like and then what the change looks like, which I love. Below it are dots which are my tagging.
