I'm learning to touch-type. I use Eclipse for Java EE. I want to use the Keyboard as much as possible. I know there's a right click button on the keyboard. But I hover the mouse sometimes and it's fast for moving in a file. Do you have any tips on how to avoid using the mouse while programming in Eclipse.

There is a Key Assist window which shows all keyboard shortcuts. You can also look at/set shortcuts on the Preferences->General->Keys screen. You can show the Key Assist window either from Help->Key Assist or using the Ctrl->Shift->L

the key for opening the short cut menu on a selected item in Windows is shift+F10.
