As a learning exercise in Tkinter I htought about making a very simple
and basic file manager for my own use. I tried searching google for
any sample project and could not find anything. Not exactly  sure how
to start I tought I could ask here? 

I thought about making two listboxes one to list folders only the
other files inside. I tried to make one listbox first but did not know
how to list folders only.

from Tkinter import *
import os
path = "D:\\"

s = Scrollbar()
L = Listbox()

s.pack(side=RIGHT, fill=Y)
L.pack(side=LEFT, fill=Y)


for filename in os.listdir(path):
  L.insert(END, filename)


Is there a way to list folders with images?
Any suggestions or help how to proced would be appreciated.

Thank you
