After logging in to your WordPress Dashboard, click the Add New link on the Plugins menu.

You then see the Install Plugins page, which you use for installing plugins from inside the Dashboard — it’s also where you can search for plugins.

At the top of the Install Plugins page are a series of links that provide a number of ways to find plugins.

This page allows for searching the WordPress Plugin Directory either by using a list of terms you type in the Search box or by clicking one of the popular tag links to quickly narrow the list of plugins.
