Increase number Recent Files

I am trying to keep track of the most recent files I have edited, but would like a longer list than Rstudio provides by default. Does anyone know how to increase the size of the Recent Files list in Rstudio?

Alternatively I found that on a mac, RStudio stores the most recent files list here: ~/.rstudio-desktop/monitored/lists/file_mru, but that it only keeps track of 15 files. Does anyone know how to increase the number of files stored there?
