How Do I Find a Component in Figma?

Finding components in Figma is a lot easier than it used to be. It is now possible to quickly search for components, drag and drop them into a project, and even organize them into folders.

To find components in Figma, the first step is to open the Components tab on the left side of the screen. This will show all of the components available to you. You can click on any component to open it and see its properties, such as its name, size, and color.

You can also use filters to narrow down your search results. For example, you can filter by type (e.g., buttons or shapes), name (e., ‘Circle’ or ‘Square’), or color (e., blue or red). This makes it easy to quickly find what you’re looking for without having to scroll through all of the components manually.

If you need help finding a specific component, you can use the search bar at the top of the Components tab. Simply enter a keyword related to what you’re looking for and Figma will show all related components that match your search query.

Once you’ve found your component, you can drag and drop it into your project canvas directly from the Components tab or double-click it for more detailed settings options such as size and color adjustments. You can also organize components into folders by clicking on the ‘Create Folder’ button at the top of the Components tab. This makes it easier to keep track of which components are used in specific projects or sections of your design workflow.


Finding components in Figma is easy thanks to its intuitive search tools and drag-and-drop capabilities. Simply open up the Components tab on the left side of your screen, use filters or search bar if necessary, drag and drop your component into your project canvas, then organize them into folders if needed.
