The Package Manager window provides several ways to help you find a specific package or feature setA feature set is a collection of related packages that you can use to achieve specific results in the Unity Editor. You can manage feature sets directly in Unity’s Package Manager. More info
See in Glossary:
|(A)||Packages list context||Choose the “context” that determines what appears in the list. The context might be the source of the package, such as a registry server, the Asset Store, or the Unity Editor itself (for built-in packages). However, the In Project context displays only those packages and feature sets that are already installed in the current project, regardless of their origin.
For example, you can choose the My Assets context to display only Asset Store packages available to you in the list, or choose the In Project context to display only Unity packages and feature sets that are already installed in your project.
|(B)||Sort||Sort the list in either ascending or descending order by name, published date (Unity Registry, My Registries, In Project only), purchased date (Asset Store packages only), or recently updated (In Project and My Assets only).
For example, if you want to find a Unity package that had a recent update but you can’t remember the name of it, try sorting by Recently updated in descending order and browse the list from the top down to find it.
Sorting affects the items under each expander, but leaves the expanders in place. If you sort from Z-A, the Package Manager reorders all the feature sets from Z- A inside its expander, and all the packages under each expander but doesn’t mix the content in the list.
|(C)||Filters||Select options to narrow down the packages listed. Packages listed in My Assets have enhanced filtering options:
- Status (Downloaded, Update available, Unlabeled, Hidden, Deprecated)
- Categories (2D, 3D, Audio, Templates, Tools, etc.)
- Labels (Custom labels you define in the Asset Store)
|(D)||Search||Use the search box to look for a Unity package or an Asset StoreA growing library of free and commercial assets created by Unity and members of the community. Offers a wide variety of assets, from textures, models and animations to whole project examples, tutorials and Editor extensions. More info

These controls help narrow down which packages and feature sets appear in the list view and in what order. This makes it easier to find what you are looking for or help you browse when you don’t know exactly what you want.
When you use several of these controls at the same time, you narrow the set of matches that appears in the list.
After you find the Unity package you need, then you can locate a specific version from the list. For feature sets, there is always only one version available, so you can either install it or remove it.
To find a specific package version:
In Unity, open the Package Manager window (navigate to Unity’s main menu and go to Window > Package Manager).
If you are looking for a pre-release package, follow these steps:
Select Project SettingsA broad collection of settings which allow you to configure how Physics, Audio, Networking, Graphics, Input and many other areas of your project behave. More info
See in Glossary under the advanced settings icon.
The Package Manager Project Settings window appears.
Under the Advanced Settings group, enable the Enable Pre-release Packages option.
Close the Project Settings window. Any pre-release packages now appear in the list with the indicator.
You can either browse the list of packages or find a specific package using one of these methods:
In the list of packages, click the expander icon to the left of the package name.
Note: If you see the See other versions link after expanding the package, you can click it to see the list of all available versions for that package.
Select any version to see the details specific to that version.
You can perform a variety of actions when you select a specific version:
