I search by files often in Eclipse. Is it possible for the "File Search" tab to be opened by default when I press Ctrl+H?

You can define a key sequence to File Search.

  • Select Window > Preferences
  • Select General > Keys
  • Scroll down to the File Search command
  • Click in the Binding field
  • Press the key sequence you want to use for File Search - I used Ctrl-Alt-F because it was unused. Alternatively you could use Ctrl-H and unbind it from Open Search Dialog
  • Click OK
