Nautilus: Change the time period for "recently used" files?

Hi, I would be happy, if I could see in “recently used” more older files.

Is it possible to change the displayed file selection so that, for example, all files that have been used in the last 4 weeks are suggested? Where can this be set?

You can change how long recently used files are stored in the privacy settings of gnome-control-center.

So I’m using Nautilus with LinuxMint 21.3, because the recognition of searched files in “recently used” with Nemo doesn’t work, if I type not the beginning of a word.
Is there another way to edit a certain config-file?

Kernel: 6.5.0-26-generic x86_64 bits: 64
Desktop: Cinnamon 6.0.4 Distro: Linux Mint 21.3 Virginia

Then there should be some Cinnamon specific way of changing this. The setting is not Nautilus specific and just taken from the desktop environment via xsettings (on X11, which I think is what Cinnamon uses) and affects all gtk applications and potentially other toolkits as well.

Ok, I found it: default value in LinuxMint is here: 7 days for remembering for files, that can be changed.
