Add a Component...?

I know this is probably going to seem like a question that is basic, but I think the answer could be overwhelming. Where can I find information about what all these Components do?

I’ve used some here and there while following various Tutorials, but I know if I want to get a firm grasp on using the power of Unreal, I need to learn what all these things do, when to use them, why I would use them, specifically, why one component over another.

(And I just scrolled down on the list. I didn’t realize just HOW MANY Components there actually are!)

You can get a short description when you hover over a component in the list, or follow the links to a more detailed description.


But, in my opinion, you should start from your task and look for the components necessary to solve it, and not memorize the purpose of each of them.
