Shortcut for hiding handles?

Hi! I’m a newbie and I have a question. I searched and searched and found nothing that helped. So…

I’m learning to work with Bezier curves and sometimes the handles get in my way. So I wind up toggling the handle display off and on. It’s quite awkward going back and clicking in that little box. Is there a shortcut for hiding handles? I haven’t found one so I would like to add one. I found File > User preferences etc but for some reason my brain is not wanting to function when it comes to actually creating the shortcut.

Help?

Thanks!
