How Do I Increase The Number Of Search Suggestions Windows 7

Specs: Windows 7
Hi, when I do a search in my Windows 7 Explorer (not IE) search box, the box only shows 3 past searches in the history suggestions, and I want to increase that number. For example, now it shows::

"Control
Interest
book"

I want it to display more than 10, for instance::

"Control
Interest
book
hunger
games
harrison
job
etc"

I have looked everywhere on the internet, and only can come up with either deleting the history or enabling it, via the wordwheelquery in the Registry...so is there a way to do this or am I stuck with only the 3 last searches.

Need either a registry edit or a way to do this without using a registry edit, thanks so much.

Save them as custom searches

If you want to see what has been searched for on the computer, open regedit, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\WordWheelQuery

Open the files, on the right in the plain text area it will have the searched items

I understand, but what I want is simply to be able to go back and search again for something I did 8 or 12 searches ago, without having to go to the registry, or save custom searches.

When I click in the search field, I simply want MORE than the 3 last searches to appear so I can click on any of those and do the search again. Thanks
