Make file type icon easily visible to left of file name. Folders, too.
File type icon to left of file name overshadowed by status icon (cloud, green check).
Stephen Davis commented
We conducted a Box training yesterday, and one of our attendees made the below suggestion relating to the file icons as they are displayed with Box Drive.
"The current Box Drive icon overlays that indicate if a file is in the cloud, stored locally, or have issues completely take over the native icon type used by Windows File Explorer and drastically reduce the efficiency for understanding what file types a user is looking at. Often we use the Green, Red, Blue differentiating icons for Word, Excel, and Power Point files among a folder to quickly know which one we need and these are obscured by the Box Drive Icons. In detail view its almost to a point of inability to understand the file type without reading the file extension, which are by default hidden in standard Windows 10 deployments.
The Box Sync Icons are much smaller and take up much less icon real estate, so this problem has already been fixed in the older add-on and should not take long to address. I have fixed mine and it only took a few hours, but this should be fixed by Box naively."
Any ideas for solving this issue?
Yes, it's kind of annoying and counterproductive.
