Default Shower handle broke and need help replacing

So how do I go about putting a new handle? There was a screw that connected the handle to the faucet but I lost it.

the handle is fine. The cartridge broke. You will have to source a new one and replace it. Get another set screw at a hardware store. Take the handle with you to size it up.
