JetBrains Rider 2020.1 Help

Structure window

View | Tool Windows | Structure

With JetBrains Rider, you can navigate the structure of the current document using the 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.

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