Since the latest insider update with refreshed icons, the thumnails doesn't show anymore inside folder icons.

In windows 10 20H2 it's working OK

I am a Windows Insider. The new folder icons looks very nice for the latest preview build of Windows 10, but the folder icons are too flat. They do not fit in well with the modern theme of Windows 10. Flat folder icons are more suitable for Windows 95, 98 and NT 4.0. My suggestion for more suitable folder icons for Windows 10 would be 3D folders similar than the ones you used to see in Windows 7. The only requirement for a better texture look in Windows 10 would be a folder texture like a cardboard texture and better edge borders.
