You probably stepped through the Palm's Prefs app for the first time the day you turned on your Palm Pilot for the first time.  Which is not a bad time to do it.  But you probably never returned to it.  That's a mistake  There are gold nuggets buried in the Prefs app.

The Prefs app has a drop-down menu of sub-apps on the top right of its screen.  The ones that it is profitable to re-visit are General, Buttons/Pen, Owner and Shortcuts.
