A way to quickly select a component anywhere

Hey guys and figma creators! We really need a way to quickly select a component or an instance across any artboard in Figma.

I mean, now you can just select a very parent element or Ctrl+click to select a very particular end layer. WHILE USUALLY what we need is to select a comprehensive element in the UI, which is usually a component.

So we need a way so select that. Some extra keyboard combination like CTRL+SHIFT+Click or smth would work well for this, I think.
