It should be in the Panel KCM under the "Menus" tab, but it isn't.

So, I am afraid that it is hard coded.

There is a 'desktop' file for each Recent Documnet in:


and the only way that I know is to delete some of these if you don't want them.

You can list them in order with:

	ls -1c $HOME/.kde/share/apps/RecentDocuments

so you could write a cron script to go through the list and start deleting them 
after the 7th one.
