# How to find a specific component in Altium PCB

When viewing a PCB (.pcbdoc) layout in Altium, is there a way to search for a specific component by name? Like "highlight C35 and show it on the screen"?

• Alternatively, if you are working in a project and have the schematic open, you can click on the component in the schematic and it should be highlighted on the PCB. Apr 17, 2017 at 21:16
