The icon for the context menu is reached by adding an additional text entry with the name: Icon to the key
The value to be executed is entered under Value, and 0 is displayed as a parameter indicating that the icon of position 0 is to be displayed
The icon of position 0 is the application icon itself.
 
Name: Icon

As described below, you have to go to the registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Folder \ Shell for the actual menu extension
