Go to your Applications folder...and drag the desired application icon from the applications folder to the Dock. The icon of the desired application should now be in the dock.

To remove undesired icons from the dock...simply drag the icon from the dock onto the desktop area...and "Poof" it will be gone.

HTH,

Nick, I think you misunderstood.

To the OP: right click on the "Contacts" icon that's labeled Applications. Select View as Folder.
