Turning default image icon into actual thumbnail image in Virtualmin

I have a large folder of images (PNG and JPG) that have hash strings for titles. In Virtualmin, next to each entry there is a generic icon which appears purple for PNG and green for JPG. Is there some way to replace that default icon with a thumbnail of the actual image? They'd be very small as thumbnails go, but enough for me to see what image it was, especially if I magnified the screen. Image here:

I want to preface this by saying that I'm not an expert in Virtualmin so I've never tried this before. That said, I did some research online to see if I could find some resources to help point you in the right direction.

I found a page through Virtualmin's site that looks as though it shows you how to create thumbnails for your directory - I'll link it below:

Virtualmin - Creating New Content Styles

Another I found is this:

How to get virtualmin file manager to display actual image thumbnails instead of generic icon

I hope those are helpful. I'm also tagging this post to improve its visibility so that users who have experience with Virtualmin will have a better shot at seeing it.

I'd also like to recommend stopping by Virtualmin's Support forums. That's also a great place to ask this question:
