In windows 7 all of my powerpoint files show the title image in the icon. Is there anyway to turn this off show it just shows some default powerpoint icon. I find it hard to actually find my ppt presentations as the icons are all different.

I have the same issue and I am aware of the "always show icons, never thumbnails" option in windows 7. but I want this only turned on for MS office documents, but not for pictures, movies etc. Is there any possibility apply these settings for specific file types? – user302339 Feb 22 '14 at 11:40
