What is the best editor for PowerShell scripts?

I like Visual Studio when writing C# applications. It shows me how many references there are to a class or a method, and I can easily jump to the declaration of a object or its class definition without having to search through all the files with ctrl-f. I have some Powershell scripts that refer to each other, and I would like to have this functionality when editing them also. Is there any editor that provides this for me?

Did you check VS itself for that purpose?

Hi,
I like Visual Studio Code

It's lightweight and runs parallel to other VS instances.

I've tried many, and the best I've found so far is PowerShell ISE with ISE Steroids created by Dr. Tobias Weltner:

All are free and work with W10. For Exchange you need to load the module, as always.
