It would help if the view is selectable ie size of the icon, or to use file details or list view.
In Win10, the recent files can be selected by right-click on the app icon in the task bar ..... this is very useful.
the Start Center currently shows recent files as big thumbnails.
the user asks to have different view modes like in any file manager (i.e. small thumbs, list view, details view)
probably not so easy to implement but a valuable enhancement request

Not without merit, but when issues like this have been discussed consensus has been that we don't intend for the StartCenter to become a replacement for the OS Desktop provided file management. Showing, or not showing, the thumbnail views of the MRU menu list is bug 74834, resizing the thumbnails is bug 73197, filtering StartCenter thumbnails by LO module is bug 80934.
Displaying the MRU items in forms other than thumbnails is really getting into the realm of work better done by the users OS/DE
As Stuart said, this is by design.
Closing this as wontfix.
I think the reporter actually meant something different - the Windows 10 jump lists; ie. something like:
So it is more a missing Windows 10 integration thing; but I don't see anybody working on this in the near future, so WONTFIX is probably the correct resolution for the moment - sorry about that.

Hm I think we already have this. At least on Windows 7 I see the jump list of recent documents when I right click on the Writer icon in the task bar.
