Use Finder tags without the actual dot?

    I'm a little perfectionist about my own notions of UI design. About the Finder tags... well I love this feature but I dont like to actually see the colored dots before the file names.

    Is there a way/hack to hide it? The idea would be to use tags normally, click on them on the left pane to access all the files marked with a specific tag... but not showing that dot near the file name.

    Thanks a lot

    ny somewhere
    select one of the tags (ie 'gray'), right click in in the sidebar, choose no color. rename it. select it for a file. done!

    You can also create a new one instead in Finder → Preferences → Tags and manage the Finder sidebar in one go.
