Functions, represented by icons, likely to be used by a user may be depicted on a display (102) such that the user may invoke functions in a user friendly manner. Target function icons to be depicted on the display are determined from a pool of available functions based on an operating environment locale of a device (100) comprising the display (102). The target function icons are then presented on the display (102) such that the user can select or invoke a function represented by the function icon. In this manner, the user may invoke frequently used functions with less user input.
