The Find Feature in Final Cut Pro is a great tool to use when you are looking for certain clips within a really big Timeline, or you have hundreds of clips in your media.  By using the Find feature you don't have to scroll through all the different folders or files to try to find the one you want; you can just search for it.

Make sure the Browser window is the active window; then from the Edit menu, go to Find, or press Cmd+F.

This opens the Find criteria window.  You can search by a specific Project, Effect, or by all Open Projects.  In the For field, you can look in All Media, Used Media, or Unused Media.  Searching All Media searches all media in the Browser; Unused Media will specify and pick out each of the clips you are not using in your Timeline.  Used Media searches all the clips in your Timeline.

You can click on the More button to specify more search options.  You can type what you are searching for in the box next to the defaulted Contains Field.  For example, if I typed  Fortune Family into the text box, FCP will search media that "contains" the words Fortune Family in it.  Once you have your search criteria chosen and click Find All, your search results will appear in a separate window called Find Results.
