You don't need to go through toolbox -> choose items ->in tab WPF Components.

Actually the components are available by default. However if the current window is code windows (a window were you can not drop a control into), the case you have mentioned could happen.

Please explain it to me.

Common XAML tab is for Windows Store applications and can't be used in WPF. It was hidden intentionally. When you selected to show hidden tabs, all the stuff which can't be used gets disabled. The same thing will always happen if you show something inappropriate for the current application.
You can't use Windows Store GridView in WPF
