It would be great to be able to search for many layers, tin, raster, table, etc. in many FGDB in the catalog.
Can you provide any additional details beyond a request for general Search, which is already possible?

Not to nitpick with semantics, but I think semantics matter when asking Esri to implement new functionality. Geodatabases don't store layers, so are you asking them to start; or are you asking them about searching for data that is already able to be stored in a geodatabase?
I have ArcGIS 10.4 Desktop basic and i'm not able to find data when i am searching in ArcCatalog and ArcMap just like Kory did. I'm working most of the time in FGDB but sometimes other people send me some Shapefiles. So, it would be great to do a right-click on a folder and type the entire name or a part of the data that i am searching.
Thanks a lot!
If you are using ArcMap/ArcCatalog, see Using search in ArcGIS—Help | ArcGIS Desktop , specifically the section on Reviewing and setting your index options.
