Currently we have a way of viewing the active questions, the newest questions & the most up-voted questions.

We also have a tab called 'Unanswered' where every question that has 0 answers (with a positive amount of votes) can be seen.

Most of the time these cover a broad enough spectrum to go about finding where to direct my attention.

However i would like to see a tab that shows all of the open questions with no accepted answers.

Having a tab like this would allow me to direct my attention to only those questions that are deemed acceptable but have no acceptable solution.

I feel this would be something used by more people than just me and i feel it could help improve the quality of this site as it helps direct peoples attention to those unsolved problems, and the more problems we have solved then the more useful this site becomes.

I realise this might be very similar to the existing unanswered tab, so i suggest doing what we do with the other tabs and give it sub-tabs.

for example clicking on Questions lets you choose between newest, votes, etc. But unanswered lets you choose my tags, newest, votes and no answers, i propose the no accepted answers tab be added to that bar along there

Currently there is no tab for such question, despite at least one feature request asking for one. I don't really expect a tab to be added, mostly because the functionality itself is already available.

Simply use the search term hasaccepted:0 (as the whole search or appended to your search) to filter the results to questions that have no accepted answer. Using it on its own allows you to find all such questions, whereas including other search terms/conditions allows you to be more targeted.

On the /search page, there is an "Advanced Search Tips" link to the right of the search button. Clicking this will teach you about more search magic.

As far as actually getting this implemented, I'd suggest upvoting (and perhaps putting a bounty on) the Meta question I've linked (although there is never a guarantee).
