Free 2017 problem

I am using the free 2017 version I know by reading through posts on forum that the 3D warehouse no longer supports this version. I am a casual user so don’t want to buy a version. However I still want to get items when I can. One post suggests I go to the tab in my model to search. I’m lost can’t figure it out. Can you help me? I normally use this program for furniture as I build things as a hobby for family and friends. Any help would be appreciated.

Look for the Components panel in the Default Tray. If it’s not there, enable it in Window>Default Tray.

How about completing your profile so you don’t have to add the SketchUp version every time you post?

Thanks I just couldn’t figure out how to get it in my model. I could see it in the component window but didn’t understand how to do it.
Ps I’ll update my profile

How to get what? The component?

Thanks for updating your profile.
