Is there a way to highlight selected parts in an assembly?

To give an idea of what I mean, here's a screen grab where I've typed "o-ring" into the search box. Trouble is, this results in isolating all components in the assy that have "o-ring" in their file names, leaving them hanging in space, out of context. This does me no good whatever. I'd like to see the entire assy, but with the selected parts somehow highlighted. I was able to do this in another modeling program, and I really miss the functionality.

 

Is there a way to do what I want that I'm not aware of? A colleague who's worked with SW for 20+ years didn't have any suggestions. Thank you.
