    You set it to Details. You have to change the view to "Large", to show the Thumbnails. But since they are associated to VLC. You usually will not see them. Only if they are associated to WMP, which is built into Windows, they may show up as Thumbnails.

    I use a program call babelsoft Media Preview that shows all my vids as thumbnails, and it is free to use.
