------------------------------------

In Eeschema there's a nice button at the top right to quickly jump over to Pcbnew. Can you please add a button in Pcbnew at the top to easily jump back to (open) Eeschema as well? I know that Alt + Tab can jump to other open windows in most operating systems, but sometimes I have many windows open and it's a pain to find the Eeschema one using Alt + Tab, so having an Eeschema button right in Pcbnew would be very handy!

Scheduling for 5.1 as this is a GUI consistency thing.
