Data type Range Default value
REG_DWORD 0x0 - 0xFFFFFFFF shortcuts 0xF (15 shortcuts)


Determines how many shortcuts the system can display in the Documents menu on the Start menu.

This entry stores the setting of the Maximum number of recent documents Group Policy. Group Policy adds this entry to the registry when you enable the Maximum number of recent documents policy. If you disable the policy or set it to Not configured, Group Policy deletes the entry from the registry and the system behaves as though the value is 15.

The Documents menu contains shortcuts to the non-program files the user has most recently opened.

Change method

To change the value of this entry, use Group Policy. This entry corresponds to the Maximum number of recent documents policy (User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer).
