The Outlook 2016 Recent Files settings is missing.  Help indicates it is located under ... Files > Options > Advanced > Display ... but it is not there.  Is there a registry hack, or is this located elsewhere in the gui?

Which setting are you looking for, exactly?

The settings I'm looking for are ...

Show number of recent ...

Show number of pinned ...

 

Both of these are in Excel and Word.  The RECENT subject seems to be missing in outlook 2016.  I'm on C2R. 

 

I realized I never answered.  Still getting used to the new space.

that's the insert files list? At the moment, you need to edit the registry for outlook's list
