The "Find Reference" feature is really nice, however, you're sometimes just want to know when at which locations a variable is written to and you do not care about the reads of it.

Especially with frequently used variables, it can be quite difficult to extract the location of writing(s).

The request is to add a possibility to filter for read/write statements. By default, those should be on but can be toggled on/off via a button in the window.

If you right click in the Find References Results window, in the menu, you should see the following filter options:

Display declaration (D)
Display read references (R)
Display write references (W)

the letters at the end are the shortcut keys, so you can toggle these filters without opening the context menu. If you turn off displaying both declarations and read references you will be left with the write references.
