Estimated time for you to write this email: at least 3 minutes.
Estimated time for you to actually create the registry key and right
click on the desktop to check whether it works: half a minute.

Seriously: just try it.

And yes, it should work. But:

You should complain with the Samsung developers about that. Or better
yet, their marketing people. Adding such a big image to the context menu
which isn't even clickable I consider spam - there's no reason to show a
stupid ad (yes, that's an ad!) to a context menu.

As Raymond Chen would say: "I bet somebody got a really nice bonus for
that feature."
