Bath tub faucet handle fix

Is there an easy fix to get this handle reconnected? Looks like a small screw that held it in place fell off.

Trying to avoid replacing faucet and the valves inside the wall (would require breaking tiles, drywall etc.) for a few months until planned renovation.

It's probably 22 years old, builder installed. I could not find any model number, name or anything inscribed anywhere on the faucet handle.

Any advice appreciated.

Just in case if anyone's interested.

Went to favorite HomeDepot to meet the favorite HomeDepot plumbing 'advisor'. He's been helpful many times.

Took a one look, showed a 'stubby' allen key to use it to tighten the 'set' screw.

Hopefully stays connected for a few more months.
