Finding the Selection Pane

If you draw certain objects (shapes, tables, text boxes, word art, charts, etc.) they will all be listed in the Selection Pane. I think if you go into the contextual tab of any of these objects, you can bring up the Selection Pane. I think another way of doing it is to right-click the object.
But I heard you can also bring up the Selection Pane from one of the normal tabs (Home tab, Page Layout tab, etc.). Is this true? Where exactly would it be on one of these tabs?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You're right, there are other ways. Press F5 to get the Go To dialog, then scroll down the list on the left for the type of object. You can also click the tiny round button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar and get a fly-out panel with the different objects. Once selected (by either method + Find), you can use the double diamonds above and below the round button to jump to the next or previous of the same object.

Actually, I found out I'm wrong. There is no other way to bring up the actual Selection Pane (it's not listed in "Find" nor in the Browse area in that lower right corner). When I said I had heard you can bring it up from one of the normal tabs, it turns out it was from Excel, not Word.
In Excel, go to: Home tab \ Editing group \ Find & Replace \ Selection Pane.

I just found out that in PowerPoint you can also bring it up: Home tab \ Drawing group \ Arrange \ Selection Pane.

seems like you can do it from any application, except Word.
