There is a free program called Irfan-view that you can use to view DXF file images by clicking on them. You need a pluging for the program so it will do this.
this is what they look like in a folder and then opened.

Thanks I will check it out, just trying to find something faster when I am looking for a file so I thought a picture would work instead of written description. once again thanks Robert.

A couple of things I have done to improve the viewing of thumbnails to find the file I am looking for are:

Right click on the folder you are looking thru and select View/Large icons. This will let you see your .bitmap type icons as a thumbnail .

Download a windows explorer plugin for viewing .svg icons, which will, along with the previous suggestion, let you view .svg and Corel Draw .cdr icons as thumbnails. https://svgextension.codeplex.com/

I have not found a .dxf explorer plugin yet, but am still looking.

Works good on image files but, not on DXF files like Irfan View does
