Having installed mingw and looking at the installation folder I noticed that there are several tools in the folder. For instance, there is an ld.exe file. I think that it might be useful if I want to disassemble a .o file, but I can find no documentation on this tool or any of the other tools installed in the mingw folder! How about objdump.exe? It looks like these tools are meant to be used from the command prompt window. So I guess I'll have to refresh my old cmd prompt knowledge. This could be made a lot simpler if there was some way to get documentation on these tools, but I have no idea where to find it.

The name of the GNU Linker is ld.
The wrapper, gcc, will call it and others as needed.

MinGW is basically a port of GCC with modifications for Windows.
A Google search for MinGW yields:
MinGW support:

This forum is for addressing problems and questions specific to CDT.
MinGW is third party software.
You should refer to the GNU documents and MinGW support instead of asking here.

You can also web search the executable names.
