Change Number of Recent Macros in Tools Menu

Another user posted this question previously but the thread was closed. I am having the same issue, only 5 recent macros show and I want 6 to show. Is there a setting anywhere or is he correct about the registry entry below?

Does anyone know how to adjust how many macros display in the Recent Macro list of the Tools menu? Mine shows the last 5 macros I've used, but I want to increase this number to say, 8, if possible. I'm thinking it's the following registry setting:


and then either or both of the following fields:

macro count (current value = 4, although it shows 5 macros in the menu)
script count (current value = 4, same as above)

It's not anywhere in the options menu, nor could I identify the configuration file where I might change it. So just wondering if changing one of these registry values might do it.

Thanks for the help.
