That tutorial was for simply adding a program to the general context menu. The OP's problem was that the "New" context menu item for txt files was missing and the "tute" did not explain how to fix it, it simply provided a workaround for adding notepad to the general context menu in order to create a text file (which may have been OK for the OP's needs).

I came across this thread when I had the same problem, and not satisfied with this workaround, further searching found the proper fix for it:
