ReSharper | Windows | Assembly Explorer

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.
In addition, the Assembly Explorer contains nodes representing base types and inheritors of the current type.

Control Name Description
assembly_explorer_open_ReSharper Open Opens an assembly from project file, library file, or a ZIP archive. For more information, see Opening and Closing Assemblies.
assembly_explorer_explore_ReSharper Explore Folder Allows choosing a folder to be explored recursively and loading all assemblies found in this folder. For more information, see Finding Assemblies in Folders.


Since ReSharper processes the selected folder recursively, make sure not to add a folder that may contain too many assemblies (e.g. Program Files). It might take long to load all assemblies in ReSharper.

assembly_explorer_open_list_ReSharper Open Assembly List Opens a list of assemblies saved with the Save Assembly List command. For more information, see Opening assembly list
assembly_explorer_save_list_ReSharper Save Assembly List Saves the list of assemblies currently opened in Assembly Explorer. For more information, see Saving current assembly list


An assembly list is saved as links to local resources and therefore might not be opened correctly on other computers.

assembly_explorer_clear_ReSharper Clear Assembly Explorer Removes all assemblies from the Assembly Explorer.
