I would like to find any photos that are missing Keywords.  Is this possible?  If so, how?

Thank you.

Select highest level folder.

Go to Edit>Find (Ctrl+F) and use Criteria Keywords, does not exist.

Check "Include All Subfolders"

Thank you for your previous answer.

I'm not sure it is working. 

I have all my photos in one folder (my highest level folder). After that they are in folders by year and then month and date and then finally the actual photos. 
When I perform the search that you outlined above, I get lot and lots of folders - some years, some months, some days.  When I click and open to get to the photos - they all seem to have keywords assigned.  I'm trying to find the very few photos that slipped by without Keywords.  That's not what I'm getting.

The folders themselves have no keywords assigned therefore they show up in the search.

Look in the "View" menu at top and switch off "Show Folders". That should solve your problem.

(You may need to turn this setting on again at some point or all your folders will remain hidden.)

Thank You Thank You!!
That worked perfectly.  I was able to clean up quite a few things.  My slight OCD thanks you too!

Be looking for further questions from me because I will appreciate your help.

You helped me with this once before and it worked perfectly.  However, today I added some photos to my files, opened Bridge and I can see the photos - they are there.  However, when I did a search for "Keywords do not exist" Bridge doesn't find these.  I don't understand.  I can easily find the 'no keywords' photos I added today, but I want to trust the search feature.  Hope you can help.
