That's just the way it is. What you are seeing is normal. The grayed-out items are available for Finder Windows, but not for the Desktop. To see the difference, do this:

Click on your Desktop and choose Show View Options.
Open any folder and choose Show View Options.
Now click back and forth to the Desktop and the open folder window.
You'll see a difference at the top and at the bottom of Show View Options.

(The final item listed in the post above is only for finder windows.)
