How can I show more than 4 files at the bottom of the File menu?

When I click File and see the list of things below it, at the bottom is a list of the last 4 files I opened. How can I get it to show me more than 4? Thank you.

    Sorry - it appears even if you have more listed in the QUSER.INI file - it only uses the 4 hard coded limit -
    C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Quicken\Config\quser.ini

    If you have more than four files that you use I would recommend putting a link to each file on your desktop.  This way you can always open Quicken with the file you want.

    If you haven't already, you may want to consider using a right-click on a pinned Quicken icon in the task bar.

    I have tried that a few times but not always found it to be successful.  Sometimes, it seems to still just open the most recently used file.  I realize it 'should' work.  I have not tried to diagnose the actual behavior.

    A shortcut to the data file should always work.

    Thank you to @Sherlock and @q_lurker and @Chris_QPW. I did put the shortcut on my desktop, but I'll also try the right-click just in case. I appreciate all the help.
