I don't see anywhere in the configuration dialog to control the number of search results so it looks like you have to edit that file.
When the user goes to the search tab they should see this:
See if you get that with a new project or one of the samples. Click Open on the RoboHelp Starter page and then click Samples in the ribbon on the left.
See www.grainge.org for RoboHelp and Authoring tips
I tried a new project and that works in showing the 'Search results per page' section. That reminded me that my existing project is one originally set up in prior version of RoboHelp -- 7 or maybe as far back as 6. And I use a slightly custom window design vs the default window style and Default skin provided for new projects. So that could be the reason behind my not seeing the desired section in my compiled help vs seeing it in compiled new project.
Thanks for the feedback.

I know this is an old topic, but I was trying to figure this out myself today and finally found it. In case others have been looking for this, it's in in this file:
find this variable:
var gnMaxRslt = 10;
and then change the 10 to the number you want.
If you do that in the generated help, the number will change in the Search pane, but it will still display only 10 results. To get it to actually display more than 10 results, I had to edit the RoboHelp file, not the generated help. I made a copy of C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 10\RoboHTML\WebHelp5Ext\template_stock\whform.js before I edited it. (Right-click the file, click Copy, then right-click in the folder and click Paste. Edit the one that doesn't say Copy in the filename. Then if you want to back it out, delete the one you edited and remove Copy from the original.) If you have your project open in RoboHelp, close it, then reopen it so it can "grab" the new info.
This ought to be in the WebHelp Setting dialog box on the Search pane.
