Setting Button Preferences

Reader rating: 2 out of 10


Your Palm handheld has four buttons below the screen. When you first bought your Palm handheld, these buttons were assigned to the default Applications: Date Book, Address Book, To-Do List, and Notes. As you begin to use your Palm handheld more and more, you will begin to notice which Applications you use most. You can change what each of these buttons does.

This How-To Article explains how to change what Application each button on your Palm handheld execute.

Setting Button Preferences

1. Go to the Applications screen (tap the Home button).

2. From the Applications list, tap "Prefs".

3. From the top right drop-down menu, select "Buttons".

4. A graphical representation of each of the buttons you can customize will be shown. From the drop-down menus next to them, select the program you want your Palm to execute when this button is pressed.

5. Once you finish changing your settings, tap the Home button again to return to the Applications screen.

When you perform a "soft-reset" on your Palm handheld, you will need to reset your button preferences.
