MassHunter Unknowns Analysis - Maximum number of peaks


I have a question regarding the Maximum number of peaks in MassHunter Unknowns Analysis under Edit method->Peak detection tab.

I have noticed that as I increase the number in this field (see photo below), I get more results and I'm not sure I understand why. I thought the software deconvolutes all detectable signals and if possible, give an ID based on the defined library. How is it useful to define the maximum number of peaks? is there a maximal value for this field? If I leave it empty, it will give me all signals detected?

Thanks in advance,
