Name (and hotkey) for dropdown

Hi all,

There is a particular dropdown in resharper that I have often used for renaming identifiers - I believe it does other things as well depending on context.  After I change the name of a variable or something, a small underline appears that expands to a drop down on hover:


I think I recall at one time using a hotkey combination to expand this but I can't remember what it was, and I don't know what the feature is called, so I could find it, or configure it.  Does anyone know what this is called?  Or the default key combination?

It appears that my screenshots were not included.  At any rate, when you change the name of an identifier, there is a red under-cursor that appears under the last character of the new name.  If you hover over it with the mouse cursor, it turns into a drop-down control - much like the one you'd see with Paste Special options after pasting into an MS Office document.  Drop it down, and you have the "Rename x to y" refactor command, and a "Rename with preview..." command.

Ring any bells?
