When you add an object to the Hierarchy panel, it will automatically appear in a render group, which is a container that groups related objects together to optimize rendering. Render groups are unrelated to the categories in the Object menu. Learn more about render groups.

The Hierarchy panel is also where you can select the object you want to edit. Once you select an object, you can go over to the Inspector panel to customize its components and properties.

Edit Objects in Batches

You can edit objects in batches by selecting multiple objects in the Hierarchy panel and simultaneously updating the shared components in the Inspector panel.
