You can browse TCGA repository using [the Case Explorer](doc:the-case-explorer) or [the Data Browser](doc:the-data-browser).

In the example below, searching for **1000g** in the **Public Files** repository filters for all the files that have **1000g** in their names or in their associated notes.\n[block:image]\n{\n  \"images\": [\n    {\n      \"image\": [\n        \"https://files.readme.io/5f37bd1-search-for-files.png\",\n        \"search-for-files.png\",\n        959,\n        958,\n        \"#333\"\n      ],\n      \"caption\": \"Keyword search\",\n      \"border\": true\n    }\n  ]\n}\n[/block]\nClick the loupe icon to choose whether the search will only be applied to the current folder or it should also include subfolders.\n[block:image]\n{\n  \"images\": [\n    {\n      \"image\": [\n        \"https://files.readme.io/b9af804-exclude-subfolders.png\",\n        \"exclude-subfolders.png\",\n        573,\n        228,\n        \"#333\"\n      ]\n    }\n  ]\n}\n[/block]\n##Filter by metadata fields\n\nOnce you have [set your files' metadata](doc:metadata-for-private-data), you can use this information to filter files. Next to the search bar in each repository are drop-down menus for the metadata fields **File extension**, **Sample ID**, and **Task** (see below). Selecting a particular metadata value from one of these menus displays only files that match the value.\n\nYou can add additional drop-down menus to filter by other metadata fields by clicking the **+** icon. \n[block:image]\n{\n  \"images\": [\n    {\n      \"image\": [\n        \"https://files.readme.io/deed253-search-by-mea.png\",\n        \"search-by-mea.png\",\n        843,\n        519,\n        \"#333\"\n      ],\n      \"caption\": \"Filter by metadata fields\"\n    }\n  ]\n}\n[/block]\n \n##Sort by metadata fields\n\nYou can sort files in a project based on the metadata associated with them. The **Files** tab displays each file and its metadata value in your project in a table format. \n\nYou can add more metadata fields, including custom metadata fields, by clicking the gear table and selecting the metadata field(s).

To start filtering by tags, click the Tags drop-down and select a tag (e.g. WES). The list of files will be refreshed based on on your choice.\n[block:image]\n{\n  \"images\": [\n    {\n      \"image\": [\n        \"https://files.readme.io/a4d0a6d-filter-by-tags.png\",\n        \"filter-by-tags.png\",\n        942,\n        586,\n        \"#333\"\n      ],\n      \"border\": true\n    }\n  ]\n}\n[/block]\nYou can use multiple tags as a criteria by selecting more than one tag.
