thumbnails only NON-FOLDER ICONS

It slows down viewing ... to open an be able to use a folder with 200subfolders ...

I need thumbnails (some free alternative to Mystic Thumbs would be greate)

But mostly on my PC there are no empty folders ... so I don't wanna w8 till all folders show thumbnails inside them

on pic > I want every folder by shown as New folder (one plain icon) and after opening I wanna see all nonfolder icons as thumbnails
