Recent settings/My menu

To help speed up the use of such long menus, the D5000 allows fast access to commonly-used menu options, either by keeping track of recently used settings or through a user-defined 'My menu.' Leaving the camera set to show Recent Settings can be a good way of seeing which menu options you regularly use, when you're deciding how to populate the 'My menu' option.

In the 'Recent settings' mode, you see the most regularly changed settings, plus 'Choose tab,' the ability to Add, Remove and Rank items only appears in 'My menu' mode.
