How to increase the number of recent files displayed in the task bar?

When you right-click on an application that's pinned to the task bar, it comes up with a list of recent files. Is there a way to increase the number it shows?
It used to be possible to personalise this in previous versions of Windows, but I do't see the same options in Windows 10.
I've looked in Settings > Personalisation > Start, but other than ability to turn it on/off, nothing.
Hi that can be done in Windows 10, but requires a registry tweak . . .

Click your Start Button, type regedit and hit Enter to open the Registry Editor

Navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

On the right-side, look for an entry named JumpListItems_Maximum.

If there is no such entry, you need to create one by right-clicking on the empty area, clicking New, clicking DWORD (32-bit) Value, and name it as JumpListItems_Maximum

Double click that DWORD and set its value to 20 or 30

Close the Registry Editor and restart your system

Power to the Developer!
