  1. AuroraBits has developerd and released a tool similar to SharePoint Manager, SharePoint Insider which can be downloaded at It is a bit easier to explore SharePoint objects with SPI as it doesn't need you to login to the server as admin which is an issue with SPM particularly if you have restricted access to your target env . Both read-only and read-write versions are available to download, hope it will help
