OpenFileDialog and File Explorer

the dotnet OpenFileDialog brings up a window that looks
similar to a File Explorer window, and indeed depending
on some user settings may list files in a details view,
thumbnails view etc.

Is there some property to set so that this may be done by
my app rather than depending on whatever state the user
left? for instance, can i force OpenFileDialog to give
the user thumbnails when the dialog is shown? a similar
question would be how to control the list of folders that
appear on the bar on the left of the dialog when it is

Thanks in advance.
