When saving a document to disk the files icon show a preview of the text written inside this document.

How do I get back the old style simmilar used by microsoft office (the W X P) so you can quick identify if this file is a writer or calc document ?

I don't have Windows 10, but in previous versions there was a Windows Explorer "Folder Option" to always display icons, never thumbnails.

don't find anything in this direction.

currently Workaround is to save all files in the Microsoft Office format (.docx). there I get constant the same icon withount a preview. But that's not the solution I prefer
