Control how many items should show in the Start8 start menu

This policy allows you to control how many items should appear on the left hand side of the Start8 start menu.

This is calculated based on large icons, so when in small icons mode the number of icons is increased by almost a factor of 2 automatically.

Setting this to enabled or disabled does nothing, you need to configure the value in the input box. Values from 0 to 40 are allowed, but the menu size will automatically adjust based on available space and the number of visible items on the right hand side.

If you do not configure this policy setting then it defaults to 10 items.
