, haven't found anything specific yet but you might want to dig in file explorer alternatives (your best bet is a more modern one that can be found in the Windows Store, or perhaps from this list https://techshaggy.com/windows-explorer-alternatives/) or plugins for file explorer. Another idea might be to use a video viewer app (something that shows an overview of videos tiled of a folder). I am sure there is something that does the trick.

Also something completely else but what might help is the DetailsPane in File Explorer (can be enabled in the menu of File Explorer), it does not show previews of videos but does show a lot of details / info of a selected video file.
