Windows 7: Peek Explorer Window - Show List instead of Thumbnail?

Peek Explorer Window - Show List instead of Thumbnail?

When I peek at an explorer window, if less than 10 explorer windows are open then it shows a thumbnail of each folder. If more than 10 explorer windows are open, it shows a list of the complete path to each folder. I find the list much more useful. Is there a setting to change the behavior to always show the list of paths?
