I am running Visual C++ 1.52 under Windows 3.1.
Is it possible in this environment to increase the number of MRU files that the framework will retain from 4 to, say, 10?
If so, how is it done?

You can, but it isn't easy.

It's not easy because the size of the list is relatively hardcoded in this version of MFC.  (It's fixed in MFC 2.0. MFC 1.5 is almost four years old!)

You'll need to overrdie: CWinApp::OnOpenRecenFile(), AddToRcentFileList(), and OnUpdateRecentFileMenu().  You'll also need to write your own OnCmdMsg() override to handle the extra command entries that you allow yourself.

The code you'll write for those functions will be really no different than what's already in MFC's APPUI.CPP source file--you'll just need to avoid the hardcoded _AFX_MRU_COUNT limit.
