Control Amount of Files Returned in a Search in WebParts

Running a search in WebParts can take long due  to the amount of files it will bring back in the search
OR some just don't want to see so many files in a search result.
If you navigate in to ecom.config in the folder directory where your site was deployed to in IIS and open it with notepad.
Now look for: 
    <!-- Maximum number of items returned by search.-->
    <add key="LimitSearchResultItems" value="2000" />
by default it will return 2000 files in a search however you can increase it or decrease it search results by changing the results= (highlighted)
