The Docklet Adder is for "Extentions" (for lack of a better term.) Similar to the ones used in the Firefox web browser.
You will need to drag and drop your shortcuts directly to YzDock. (see below)
1: Right click on YzDock and make sure that "Magnification" is checked and that "Locked add\move\delete" is unchecked.
2: Right click on the YzDock and select settings. On the Appearance tab, slide the transparancy bar all the way over towards "Opaque".
3: On the Menu tab; under Icon Size, check "Dynamic size by screen resolution". Close the settings window.
4. Drag the the shortcut that you want directly over to YzDock (the dock itself as well as any icons in the dock should get larger).
5. If the icon does not appear in the dock it could be because the shortcut icon is not being displayed properly.
6. To check if the shortcut icon is being displayed properly, move your cursor back and forth slowly over the dock (again, the dock itself as well as any icons in the dock should get larger), look to see if the shortcut's name appears beneath the dock. If the shortcut's name does appear: right click and select "Property of Dock Item..."
7. In the Properties Window for the Dock Item, check: "Use System Icon". The shortcut icon should appear in the square box on the right. (if the shortcut icon does not appear let me know.) Close the Properties Window.
