It's sometimes helpful to understand where a component is used in content types and entries. You can find out where a component is used by using either of the following paths.

Understand usage from the component listing

The number of content types in which a component is in use is indicated in the component listing.

The usage panel in the content type builder

When a component is opened for editing, a usage pane can be seen in the right hand panel.

The panel shows a list of content types and and the number of entries that are currently using the component. Pressing on the content type in the list will open the content type for editing.
