add icon to context menu "Open File/Folder Location"

Is it possible to add icon to the entry Open File/Folder Location? I created expendable string value and name it Icon and then in value i inserted the path to the .ico file, but no icon is showing up.

I read the tutorial but i don't think this will work for shellex entries. And 7-zip entry doesn't appear in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell

It appear in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\7-Zip
and i followed the tutorial and added one extended string value for the icon, but still no icon is appearing in the context menu.
