Why is there only an option/function to view the images only? If you are looking for a word document it can be easy when you can see the documents only. This is also for PDF files and such. Maybe a function to sort on file types would be handy.

We have a dropdown for filtering by date. We could add another one for filtering by extension.

Also note that there already are views for general types, such as images, audio etc.:

All (1) | Image (1) | Unattached (1)

All (1) | Image (1) | Music (1) | Unattached (1)

and the in the music menu an option to sort on e.g. '.wma' files.

That is just the basic idea no?

You can create more filters by hooking into the post_mime_types filter.
