    File Explorer Quick Access Search box: How to increase keyword history

    Is there a way to increase the number of remembered search items in the search box in file explorer and file open dialogs?

    The history shows 3 keywords which were previously searched. I would like it to be able to show up to 5 items (if available) for example.

    Is there a way to customize this?

    I'm don't know how to increase it more than 3 when you click on search but if you type the first letter of a previous search it will show the last 3 searches starting with that letter, the more letters you type will show words matching previous searches.

    As long as you don't clear your search history you could have 100's or 1000's of stored word's
