I use Asus PDA running Windows mobile 5.0.
I pressed Start > Settings
At the start menu settings I unchecked the 'settings' item
and this prevent the 'settings' from the start menu.
Now i have no access to the 'Settings'
How to restore the 'Settings' to the start menu?

I can't believe it actually lets you de-select and remove Settings from the Start Menu-- most PPCs dont't for obvious reasons. Check to see if the PPC put a Settings folder in your programs folder. If not, the use the File Explorer to create an empty folder called Settings in the Start Menu folder inside the Windows folder. Reboot after you've done this and see if it comes back.

My Dell seems to indicate that items you uncheck from the Start Menu will be moved to the Programs list, although it does not give me the option to remove Settings.

I Checked to see if the PPC put a Settings folder in my programs folder and yes i found the Setting folder there but it an empty folder.
as you sayed i used the File Explorer to create an empty folder called Settings in the Start Menu folder inside the Windows folder. and after Reboot it not comes back.
One guy told me that the only way is to HR and install from the begining or the other way is to open the registry system and fix it.
Were can i read about how to manage the registry?
