Before you can customize the number of items in the recent items list, complete the steps in Customizing the list of recent items in your application..
Open your copy of the pxRecentGrid section.
In your section that displays the recent items list, click the View properties icon of the cell contained in the section to open the Cell Properties panel.
On the General tab, click the Open icon next to the section name to open your copy of pxRecent section.
In your copy of the pxRecent section, click the Gear icon in the Section include header of your copy of pxRecentGrid section to open the Layout Properties panel.
On the General tab, click the Open icon next to the section name to open your copy of pxRecentGrid section.
In the copy of pxRecentGrid section, click the Gear icon in the Table layout header to open the Layout Properties panel.
In the Pagination section on the General tab of the Layout Properties panel, specify the number of items that you want to display in the recent items list in the Page size (number of rows) field. The recent items list displays the number of items up to this specified value.

As a best practice, ensure that the number that you specify as the Page size (number of rows) on the General tab of the recent item grid is the same number that is specified in the Maximum Documents field of the dynamic container used in the portal. A dynamic system setting, Pega-UIEngine.pyMaxrecentrecords, controls the maximum number of items tracked per user. The default maximum is 30 items per user. The page size that you specify must be less than or equal to the dynamic system setting value.
