File Structure window

ReSharper | Windows | File Structure
Control+F11

With ReSharper, you can navigate the structure of the current document using the File Structure window, which greatly simplifies navigation in large files. The window is synchronized with the editor: as you switch to another editor tab, the window displays the structure of the corresponding file. To navigate through the file easily, preprocessor directives are hidden by default.

Right from the File Structure window, you can access even more actions. To check the available commands, you can right-click any symbol.
