How do I add a shortcut/launcher to left side panel?


Hello. It used to be that I could right-click on the panel and be given the option of adding a shortcut/launcher to a program upon the panel. But that doesn't seem to work on this newfangled desktop. So, how do I do it? Note, I did do internet searches, and generally found stuff that applied to former versions of gnome -- all instructing me to right-click on the panel.

I think I solved this. Seems I can drag and drop stuff that I find from the top search button onto the side panel. Also, I can clear out unwanted shortcuts via a right-click --> "Unlock from Launcher". So, another solved question.
