Windows 7 Recent Items only hold the last 30 days (1 month)

I have been trying to find documents that I have worked on, but it is only has the last 30 days of recent items.  Can I find more than just 30 days?  Going forward is there a way to change that default to 6 months instead of 1 month?

dsheridan--Sorry it did not work out for you.  Some times "it cannot be done" is the answer.

The inference is that 60 days may be the maximum.

Sorry #2 is still talking about # of Items (I don't think it's talking about days)

I did set this before I submitting the question, but thanks for asking.  I was just hoping that there was more of a setting for stating a time period, since XP held forever
