As mobile technology has developed, portable and save-function added equipments including mobile phone or PDA widely have been spread. According to improvement of memory, it's been also possible to load much larger application on it as well. In result, the amount of menu lists has increased. However, regarding the display that is the most serious critical point when using mobile equipments focusing on portability, it can be only used limited screen compared to existing middle and big sized monitor. Consequently, the format of menu list, which should be relatively smaller in accordance with increasing the amount of menu, would be able to cause time-delayed problem. Based on this assumption, in this study, linear row of PDA menu is presented by using Fisheye graphical visualization technique. Fisheye view is the way to present a target, in which users are interested, in detail but to present other things simply. It's been realized having the screen of display distorted but the range of distortion is unequal. In other words, the focused area turns to be extremely distorted but the other areas have become less distorted as far from it. The trial of design of menu by using Fisheye distortion on the limited display will be the effective way. Users can easily work out when selecting the menu by using buttons at the minimum. This kind of situation could be possible to display whole menu on only one screen by enlarging fonts and spaces among lines on the area where user reads.
