  3. On the VPCs page, click Filter by Tag.
    Filter VPCs by tag
  4. In the displayed dialog box, select or enter the tag key and tag value, and then click Search.
    You can select or enter a complete tag key-value pair, or you can select or enter only the tag key. You can search for instances with a maximum of 20 tags.
