A huge thumbnail blocks view in drag move/copy

I am recently noticing that when I select certain files/ folders and drag them to move/ copy to somewhere,
a huge thumbnail icon appears at mouse point that hides the view in the folder-tree and file-list panes
and I am not able to see where my mouse is pointing to.

So eventually I have to drop "approximately" and sometime it had taken those things to wrong folder
and I had to go through long process of manually undoing-redoing.

I don't remember if it was always happening, otherwise I think I would have asked here earlier.

I am on 770. I don't remember If I did some change to cause that.

How to remove that big thumbnail?

Thanks.

The default Windows drag image will be showed if you use "Use blocking transfer..." option.

My fc has that option ticked.

This huge thumbnail is blocking view, I can't see what folder it is going to get dropped in. it is inconvenient.

It happens in windows also, though I have "always show icon and not thumbnails" ticked in windows folder options.
With this, I guess it has to be some windows setting getting inherited by fc.
May be fc can consider giving its own setting for the same.

I have observed this thing happening recently, since I moved from 8 to 8.1, don't recall it having happened like this earlier.

Thanks.
