There should be a way to increase the number of files shown in the recent file list

Under files, there is a list limited to 4 of recent files.  A search reveals that this is hard coded, but was also a request made 6 years ago and repeated 5 years ago.  It seems like a simple request and should be under preferences.

    I too would like to see the Most Recently Used (MRU) list expanded.

    I find it helpful when I do testing of various features because I will access a number of data files to work with..

    However, I suspect that the vast majority of users rarely use more than two data files and certainly not more than four.

    What that means is that I suspect that Quicken gets so few requests for this idea that it never makes it to the 'To Be Implemented' list and I don't expect that to change.

    To everyone that would like this, make sure to VOTE on this post. Just adding a comment is not enough. You need to click on the vote button to register your vote (And this goes for all ideas, not just this one).

    I've been hoping for this feature for a LONG time!  Seems simple enough to extend an array and write a few more lines in the file menu module...

    Right click on the Quicken icon in the taskbar to get a some extensive list of recent files:


    -splasher  using Q since 1996 -  Subscription  -  Win10
    -also older versions as needed for testing

    Here here. This has been on my wish list for 5 years. PLEASE MAKE THE MRU LIST LONGER THAN 4. Or, at least make it a variable in QUSER.INI

    It would be nice to have more from the pull down menu. I just got through checking the preferences to see if I could configure the number of files shown. This is common in other programs, it would be nice here. I have 5 that I use, so just out of range of the hardcoded 4 files.

    Thanks for asking.
    As a workaround, have you seen and tried the solution posted by @splasher above?
    After right-clicking the icon for the first time, it might take a few seconds for the Recent list to popup.
