Hello nmsvpt, and welcome to Seven Forums.

With that folder icon tutorial, you will not have thumbnail previews if you want all folder icons to be changed. The NOTE box at the top of the tutorial will give you more details on this though.

You might consider this one below instead for what you are wanting.

Hope this helps with this part of your issues,
