1.  (I originally had a question about menu size, but just now and after a month, it decided to start working)

 

 

2.  In the Start menu, there is a certain number of items under "Recent Items".  Is there a way to increase the number of items in this list.   If so, would whatever that way is also work the same for the "Documents" items in a Windows Vista Start menu?

 

Thank-you.

I posted this question in Windows 7 area because I was asking it for Windows 7, but I also asked if what would work that way for Windows 7 would also work for Windows Vista.  I do not currently have access to my Vista machine, so I cannot confirm the information you posted for Vista, but I found it will not work for Windows 7.  I tried changing to 25, but it is still only showing 15, which is the same as always, but yes, what you posted is the idea that I mean.  Is there a way to do it in Windows 7?  Thanks.

Is there a way to control what is collected in "Recent Items"...for example, only document files (and not videos, etc.)?  Thanks.
