On Windows 7 and 8.1 you can set the number of items to show in the jump lists.
As a result of my love to pin frequent folder/documents and websites to the jump lists I had this set at 15

Now that I have migrated to Windows 10, I am struggling to find how to increase this limit - This PC gives me around 11 pinned entries before not allowing any more, Excel and Word are 10, and Chrome seems to be stuck at 9. Its the limit in Chrome that is most annoying as I had 14 websites pinned ... 

The option that was present on the Start Menu Properties for W7/8.1 is missing and I can only find a setting in the settings app to turn jump lists on or off.

^ Sorry, but did you look at those links?

First one is referencing a very early build which is no longer an option in the full release
Second link is someone asking the same question I am asking (basically)

Still looking for assistance...

the one thing the eeerrk me since win 7 was the pastel colour for windows and themes make it really hard to see if got old eyes. and the bug in the themes where couldnt have really dark theme
without loosing the header text

also the fact you have to unhide the panels all the time. doesnt have a lock symbol
prob a reg hack for it dont know

in ms wordpad right click dont have select all so can copy quickly

and paint lost the option to change eraser colour..  as not all backgrounds are white

theres a hack to use the old versions though which I havent done.
