        Non-Office files when covered with AIP label or protection are getting additional sub-icon on the main file icon. But for Office files it is not the case. Issue: users can't easily find Office files in Windows Explorer that are covered with AIP labels or protection. They need to first open the Office file in Office Client or AIP Client to make sure is AIP is in use. Second issue: it's not consistent for user experience when non-Office files are getting additional marking on file Icon, bot Office files don't. Please add the sub-icon to Office files, too.

        It would be very beneficial if the Classification label is able to previewed within File Explorer for all MS Office and non Office type document. For example, when you have a list of files listed where it shows 'Name', 'Date Modified', 'Type', 'Size' you could have a Coloumn for 'Classification Label' and it would show if the file is 'Restricted' or 'Confidential'

        This feature would help to easily identify which MS Office documents have been classified and protected with ease.

        Would love to have this feature avaialable soon. This is a big ask from one of my enterprise customer who is seriously and rigorously evaluating AIP for their organization.

        This is a great wish to make it easy for users to find their aip documents in Onedrive

        Currently, we are able to quickly identify or list out the protected documents such as .txt file or .jpg file as there are changes in the suffix of the file format i.e. ".p" is included to become .ptxt, and there is a locked icon shown. Can we have something similar to identify Microsoft office documents?
