A shortcut menu screen is shown in FIG. Nine types of icons 31 (functions) can be registered in one shortcut menu screen 23a as described above. In this embodiment, since there are two shortcut menu screens, a total of 18 types can be registered. In each icon 31, a key type (a number from "1" to "9", that is, a number key from "1" to "9") that activates a function corresponding to each icon is displayed at the lower right of each icon. The Further, FIG. 4 shows a case where the center icon (icon 5) is selected, and a cursor 33 (here, a + symbol is displayed at the center of the circle, and Δ is added to the top, bottom, left, and right sides of the circle. Is displayed over the selected icon. The function name of the selected icon (function) is displayed in the lower column 32. Here, “Sky Melody” is displayed.
[0011]
The icon 31 registered in this way can change the image. In this case, after selecting the icon to be changed on the shortcut menu screen (FIG. 4), the icon editing screen is displayed and the “icon change mode” is set. Then, move to the image selection screen, select the desired image after the change, and press the enter key.
