Here's a quick tip that you may find useful. It will show you how to reveal (or hide) in the object menu, at which point you can simply select all of those objects you want to work with.

yes i know about that,thank you
but this is not enough - let's say i have a complex building and i want to select only windows or maybe columns or other elements (this kind of objects i was referring to when i said - identical by geometry )

in fact my goal is to turn those identical objects to instances

I don't know of any function that searches for identical geometry, but I think it most cases where there are identical objects they should have the same names, or at least names that contain identical strings. If that's the case then you can use the search function in the Object Manager (magnifying glass) to solo them in the object manager.

yes i know - in most cases yes but i have a scene which is imported from another software so almost all objects were imported with id000, id001 and so on
