Hi experts,

Go to Start > Run and type in MMC.

Now go to the menu item Console > Add/Remove Snap..in. Click the "Add" button look and select "Group Policy" and folllow through on the insrtuctions.

Now that you have the Console look for User Configuration > Administratvie Templates > Window Component > Windows explorer and in the right hand pane look for "Maximum number of recent documents" right click and choose properties and then select "Enabled" and then set the number.
