I am a Java developer with Eclipse. I like the Ctrl+Shift+R function in Eclipse to search a file. Is there a standalone, free and open-source application to achieve the same functionality in the Windows OS?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You can download Eclipse for Windows...? – Matthew Adams Jul 15 '12 at 15:51
@Matthew Adams: I think OP wants that functionality working independently of Eclipse. If that's the case, probably that AHK (AutoHotKey) would allow him to do what he wants (by binding some key combinations to whatever 'search file' program he wants). – user988052 Jul 15 '12 at 15:53
