Assembly Explorer

Windows | Assembly Explorer
Ctrl+Alt+L

Assembly Explorer allows opening multiple assemblies and keeping a list of opened assemblies and folders. You can traverse and explore all opened assemblies. Expanding an assembly node lists namespaces within the assembly, that can be further expanded to types and type members, as well as assembly references. You can double-click any type to decompile it or fetch source from a symbol server (depending on your settings).
In addition, the Assembly Explorer contains nodes representing base types and inheritors of the current type.
