How to have Explorer show thumbnails as “Extra Large” without the folder graphic?

I want to remove the folder graphic so only the image appears when seeing the “Extra Large” thumbnail folder option. Is a way to do so? Maybe a third party software? Irfanview thumbnails, Adobe Bridge, all will show folders as yellow icons, but I want to see the images in the folder, before entering them.

If this is impossible, there is a way to select what will appear on the thumbnail?

If I have an image and a text file, it will show a blank ‘page’ graphic on top of the image. I want the image to appear, but it still shows the page even if I add “!!” to the start of the image name, so it is the first thing inside the folder.

      Thanks Hovsep A, Approach is very interesting, I will give it a try. Not exactly what I want, but good in a general way.

    Answering my own question:

    Couldnt find a way to remove the folder graphics, but setting the folder for Picutres, then right clicking the folder, going Properties, Customize, Choose File we can choose a file to be the only one appearing on the thumbnail.

    Now if I could find a way to automatize the process for my thousand of folders... (the common macro makers wont click automatically on different position on screen for each case, so I dont know how to solve the problem)
