Can You extend track history limit beyond 20 fields?

Currently, when You're setting up track history, You can select only 20 fields.

It's pretty artificial limit, because You can add triggers to make your own tracking beyond any limitations. Though assuming I wanted to use "standard way" - is there a way to disable this limit?

Are you wiling to Remove the History tracking for Some field existing in the Database? If so,G0--Setup--Customize/Create---Select object ----fields---Click on History Tracking button---Uncheck the Checkbox beside to Field which you want to remove from History tracking.

If you are willing to increase the limit then you could contact your Salesforce Account executive to increase the limit.

This is the Limit (20 for all editions) specified by Salesforce and it cannot be changed using native functionality but you may check with Salesforce support.
