Make Method Non-Static refactoring
This refactoring allows you to convert a static method into an instance method of the original or another type. The target type for the new instance method can be selected from one of the types passed as parameters to the method. All usages, implementations and overrides of the method are automatically updated.

Info, where it logically belongs:
