folder icon in Windows Explorer

hi,

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 ?
