Increase Recent Documents Number in Windows XP

Just a quick note here. This is an article based on the REG file from Kelly's Korner ( I'm not fond of downloading REG files and running them even if I have checked what it's doing. I'm putting a note here just for me:

  1. Start > Run > Regedit > OK
  2. Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
  3. Create New DWORD Value
  4. Name it "MaxRecentDocs"
  5. Double-click on the new DWORD
  6. Set value data to "19" ( equals 25 )
  7. Leave Base as "Hexadecimal"
  8. OK
  9. Restart your computer
