I am new to Tagging. I bought Elements 2020 or 21 and I like the organizer. But what I tag a photo then open it up in Bridge or Photoshop there is no Tag Info. I know I can Tag in Bridge and PS but the Elements Organizer helps me in other ways.

What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do to Tag a photo and have it carry through to other software?

By default, your keywords are only stored in the catalog. It's up to you to 'write metadata to files' (Shortcut Ctrl W). Then they are available to Bridge, PS or LR or most other editing programs. You'll see in the IPTC section showing in your screenshot as well as in the properties in the Windows explorer. Note that  Lightroom is able to 'convert' organizer catalogs to its own format, recovering the keywords even if they are not 'written to files'.
