Go to Sidebar Menu > All Posts

You’ll notice both of the posts that I have created are here. I can select individual ones or select them all.

I can filter by categories as well. So, I can choose all the posts that don't have a category yet. I can also filter it by month in which the post was created, and filter that to just the posts I’m looking for.

Now I can do a Bulk Action. I’ll go to Edit, and I’ll apply that. Both of these guys are "Islands," so I’ll do this. And I could also add tags here as well.

I’m just going to make that one change and update, and it’ll change both posts.

Notice that "Maui" is listed as Uncategorized; I could go to Quick Edit, and that takes me to the general settings of the post. I'm not in the body of the post itself, but I can make small changes to things like the categories or the tags and update it without touching the text at all.
