Depth of Open Recent Stack

Since there is not “import” from other KiCAD PCBs to my present one under work, I frequently need to switch back and forth between projects. The “Open Recent” project should prove useful here. However I note that this option only includes 1 entry for the active project. Usually I expect to see a stack of at least a few recent projects here.
Is there some setting I have neglected for the stack depth?

@eelik, where exactly did you find that viewport? I looked in the overhead menu…Preferences…preferences, first in kicad main viewport, then in eeschema viewport, then finally in pcbnew viewport. But I didn’t see it anywhere in 5.1.5.

Do you mean the view in the screenshot? It’s under the Common section, as can be seen in the picture.

My kicad (Version: 5.1.5+dfsg1-2~bpo10+1, release build) doesn’t have a “common” section in any menu or viewport. Maybe because it is a linux application ?

I see the same as @eelik with 5.1.5 under fedora.

I even see it if i open pcbnew in standalone.

My Linux (openSUSE) build of Kicad 5.1.5 has it too.

@Rene_Poschl and @kenyapcomau,
thank you. I found the viewport under Preferences…Preferences.
