The References pane displays a list of all the components that your project currently references, such as .NET Framework assemblies, COM components, and external projects.

Add New Reference

Opens the Add Reference dialog box. For more information, see Add Reference Dialog Box.

Remove Reference

Deletes the reference to the assembly that is selected in the References list.
