folder icon in Windows Explorer


I am using server 2012.  something happened to my view of files.  There is a large yellow folder icon on the far right of the page.  I believe it is the preview pane.   I would like to turn it off so I have more view of columns which are off the page.

is there a way to turn it off ?

i can not even get the snipping tool to work here.

 so if i click on windows explorer. from the left of the page is my file structure, then moving right is my folder i selected. it has name, date modified, and all other details wabout that folder.  moving a bit futher right is an icon of the folder i am in.   i woul dlike to lose that ICON so that i can have more room to display my detail of the folder or file.   how do you loose the ICON  ?
