The Recent Items menu contains shortcuts to the nonprogram files the user has most recently opened. If you enable this policy setting the system displays the number of shortcuts specified by the policy setting. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting by default the system displays shortcuts to the 10 most recently opened documents. “
