Anyone knows the setting (in registry perhaps) to enlarge the history list of the remote desktop client?

All signs indicate that the history length isn't a configurable setting. Here's a link to a listing of all the possible registry keys that the RDP client checks as it starts, which would include the history length setting if it existed.

The history list size is capped at 10 entries. The history items are stored in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Default] as entries MRU0 through MRU9. Creating an MRU10 entry will not create an 11th history entry.
