Often times the hierarchy is so deep, it takes ages to find the selected object in your Object Manager.

There is a hotkey for this though, that you can use to quickly expand and jump to the currently selected Object.

In the Customize Commands Panel this is called:

Scroll to First Active

Set it to your desired hotkey or pull it into the GUI to have an accessible button.
