Keyborad shortcut to switch the focus from a tool window to the "main" window (where code is)?

I know I can use the "Alt-3" for example to go to "Find", but then I do not know what to press to go to the code again (without closing the "Find" tool window).

In other words, I want to change focus immediately from the "Find" tool window (or any other tool window that may have the focus) into the "code window" and vice verca, without closing any of it.

The reason is that I want to use keyboard only, so "Ctrl-E" is different depending on where the focus is.

Is it possible somehow?

Thank you!

Hi there,

Esc -- as simple as that.

Thanks Andriy,

Esc gives focus back to the code window, but now how do I go again on the "Find" window fast? (without having to remember on which tool I was so that I have to press "Alt-3"? I do not want to remember the "3" part of the shortcut, I just need a shortcut like "Focus Back to the latest focused tool window" and the focus goes where it was before).

Is this possible somehow?

F12 -- "Window | Active Tool Window | Jump to Last Tool Window"

P.S.
I suggest checking out "Help | Default Keymap Reference" in case if you are new to this IDE.

Thank you.

Yes, I did read, but there are so many options and key combinations (fortunately) that sometimes we have to ask.
