There is a great feature that has been around for quite a while in Salesforce Classic, but may have not yet been discovered by some: the ability to have your related lists display more than the default 5 records.
This feature allows individual users to control displaying “more” or “less” related records for all object page layouts.
To do this, view any record detail page. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, after all of the visible related lists. On the bottom of the page, you should see some text on the page that says:
You can click on the fewer or more option to control the number of records that will display in your related lists for all objects. Each click, will decrease/increase the current setting by 5. If you have a certain number of records in mind (from 5 to 100), and don’t want to click manually on the fewer/more links, this can be done more quickly by using the URL rowsperlist setting.
For example, on a record detail page, go to the URL and append “?rowsperlist=50” after the record id:
This setting is sticky and will remain at the number of rows you define unless manually changed. This is true for navigating away from the page, viewing another object record or logging out of the system.

After: Using 15 rows:
