    That's the way I just did it with just the one entry. Set it to decimal value of 24 and this is what I get. This is good for me as I wanted more pinned items.

    Sure glad I read this thread. Thanks much for all the help guys. Now if it was just possible to move them around it would be even better.

    Been playing with Windows 10 a couple of days now (did a clean install) and kind of like it. I was pretty resistant at first getting out of my Windows 7 comfort zone. I'm adjusting to this new OS and bringing whatever I can that I liked from Windows 7 along (skipped Windows 8 altogether).

    Yeah, its a shame, they seem to have removed the feature for customizing the number of items in the jump list. In 7 and 8 you could do it from the taskbar settings or directly in the registry. The same registry mod didn't work for me in 10:



    Manually in Registry Editor
    1. Open the Start Menu, then type regedit in the search line and press enter.

    2. In regedit, navigate to: (See screenshot below)
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
    3. In the right pane of Advanced, right click on Start_JumpListItems and click on Modify. (See screenshot above)

    4. Select (dot) Decimal. (See screenshot below)
    5. Enter how many (0 to 60) recent items you want displayed in Jump Lists, then click on OK. (See screensho above)
    NOTE: The default number to display is 10.

    6. Close Regedit.

    Also, I find having just JumpListItems_Maximum without Start_JumpListItems gives the most flexibility. JLI_M imposes a maximum number of entries (& actually includes the Recent''& 'Pinned' headers toward the total count) but it can be any combination of pinned or recent.

    Nice find!

    I have added the JumpListItems_Maximum to HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced and tried various settings between 15 and 30 (decimal). Nothing seems to change the number of recent items that appear. I've not tested much with pinned items -- for me, it's a longer list of recent items that I want. Have I done anything wrong or missed something, or does this registry setting only apply to pinned items (from what I've read here, that has not been the case for others)? Note that there had also been the Start_JumpListItems, but different values in that didn't seem to do anything either, so I deleted it, which seemed to be recommended here too for maximum flexibility between pinned and recent items.

    Here's a screen shot of that registry key:

    Not sure why it's not working for you. One thing you can try is resetting your jumplists to see if that helps. Note that this will get rid of any pinned and recent items currently on the lists:

    1. Open a command prompt.

    2. In the command prompt, "Copy and Paste" (or type) the command below and press enter. (see screenshot below)

    Code:
    del /F /Q %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\*
    3. In the command prompt, "Copy and Paste" (or type) the command below and press enter. (see screenshot below)

    Code:
    del /F /Q %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations\*



    4. Close the command prompt.

    5. Log off and on, or restart the computer to fully apply.

    6. Your jump lists have been reset and cleared to be empty now. It may take a day or two afterwards before the jump lists repopulate.

    Then you can try resetting Explorer from the task manager.

    Thank you for the tip. I cleared those two folders (AutomaticDestinations and CustomDestinations) and restarted, as you suggested. This did clear all of my jump lists, as expected. However, upon opening 15-20 documents, I see that I can still only get 12 items in the Jump Lists (both on the taskbar and Start menu).

    I am connected to a domain, but I don't think that's the issue, or it would have overwritten the JumpListItems_Maximum value based on some Group Policy. No, it's just ignoring it. There must be another value somewhere that's overriding it.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks for any suggestions. This is really killing my productivity.

    Okay, here's a suggestion: Have you tried setting both values (StartMenuInit and JumpListItems_Maximum) to the value you want? (i.e. 20)

    I set both values to 30, and get thirty items (or close to it). But, as always, YMMV. :-)

    Wait, that's a new registry key for me. Is that one to set -- StartMenuInit? The only other key I know about besides JumpListItems_Maximum was Start_JumpListItems, which I did have set to a value higher than 12 earlier, but it didn't seem to make any difference, so I deleted it. I didn't try setting again after clearing the 2 appdata folders.

    Is StartMenuInit different from Start_JumpListItems, or did you just use shorthand, and you really meant the same thing?

    I didn't see 'Start_JumpListItems' in the screenshots you have: The keys I saw that are the relevant ones were 'JumpListItems_Maximum', which in your screenshot was set at '15,' and 'StartMenuInit', a separate key, which is set at 11.
