Just like the title states. I've read through the readme at https://github.com/junegunn/fzf.vim but can't seem to see anything mention about this. I've even tried to search the repo for max which only returned 1 seemingly unrelated match.

The default seems to be 90 files which seems very small, specially when working with many projects.

By recent file history I mean the files that show up via :History.

  • Which command are you referring to exactly? I guess fzf only looks at an history stored somewhere and the configuration does lies with fzf but with vim itself.

:History command operates on :oldfiles result which is stored in v:oldfiles variable that is loaded from viminfo.

You can change it by changing viminfo, there might be better approach, but anyways:

  1. the value to adjust is '100 (default)
  2. check current value with :set viminfo (mine is: '100,<50,s10,h,rA:,rB:)
  3. change '100 to whatever you want, for example 200: :set viminfo='200,<50,s10,h,rA:,rB:
