Eclipse: Keystroke for search (like the flashlight icon)

In Eclipse, in the Java perspective, there is a very handy flashlight icon on the toolbar. Can I access that using keystrokes rather than clicking the flashlight?

Control/Shift/L shows my key mappings, but it shows "Search" as Alt+Shift+Q,S. Not exactly a sequence that I'm likely to remember, and it doesn't do the same thing that clicking the flashlight icon does.

You can take a look at, and configure, shortcut keys under "Windows/Preferences.../General/Keys" (or something like that - this is from memory. There might also a "Workbench" missing somewhere.)

I don't know how that action is called exactly, though, sorry.

CTRL+H

But as Ilja said, you should have a look at the Preferences :

Window->Preferences->Workbench->Keys->Keyboard Shortcuts
In Command/Categories, select Search.
