Windows 10 - How to increase Jump list items number

Windows 10, differently from Windows 7, has not a specific menu where increase Jump list items number.

If you would like to change this setting you should apply some registry changes.

Here it is relative workflow:

  1. start --> regedit
  2. Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
  3. (be aware to check this section too) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
  4. You should Right-click Advanced folder and choose New > DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name the new value JumpListItems_Maximum 
  5. Double-click JumpListItems_Maximum value to open its properties window.
  6. You should put a value between 15 and 20.
