Find Results window

ReSharper | Windows | Find Results

This window is used to display various search results (for example, usages of a symbol, usages of external symbols, exposing APIs of a symbol, and more) It displays results of the latest search as well as results of previous searches in different tabs. The results of each new search command are displayed in a separate tab except for the same search/navigation command.

ReSharper: Find results window

You can quickly open documents containing specific search results by double-clicking on these results. If you want the files to be opened in the Visual Studio's Preview tab, you can tick the corresponding checkbox on the Environment | Search & Navigation page of ReSharper options.

Window tabs

When search results open in the window, they are displayed in new tabs, which show up on the left. The previously open tabs move to the right if the width of the window allows, otherwise they unload themselves saving memory - but you can always restore them by clicking the arrow that appears to the right of the tabs and clicking the required tab:
