Yes, there is (though I think it's an undocumented easter-egg kind of
setting). By default, the number of recent files kept in the list is set
to kDefaultMaxRecentFiles=20 (as defined in TWApp.cpp). But you can
(manually) add a config setting "maxRecentFiles=100" or whatever that
should increase the size of that list (I haven't tried it, though; this
is just extrapolated from TWApp.cpp).
