Hi fipoo,

welcome to this forum!
You could use the tocloft package to customize the list of figures, see its documentation. Have a look at the following small example demonstrating it similar to your description:

CODE: SELECT ALL  •  OPEN IN WRITELATEX
\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{report}
\usepackage{tocloft}
\renewcommand*\cftfigpresnum{Figure~}
\settowidth{\cftfignumwidth}{\cftfigpresnum}
\renewcommand{\cftfigaftersnumb}{\quad--~}
\begin{document}
\listoffigures
\newpage
\begin{figure}
\centering
Test\caption{Test}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

Thank you
Stefan
