By default, jump lists display the ten most recently accessed items. Note that the lists display ten items, not that lists only keep track of ten. In fact, if you access a jump list displaying ten items and remove one, you'll notice another item move in to take its place. That being said, if you would prefer that jump lists display a different number of items other than ten, you can modify it, but only if you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8. (Windows 10 lacks the ability to adjust the number of jump list items.)
If you are using Windows 7, follow these steps:
Figure 1. The Customize Start Menu dialog box.
If you are using Windows 8, follow these steps:
Figure 2. The Jump Lists tab of the Taskbar and Navigation Properties dialog box.
