    Go to Apps. Find Internet. Long press it, then drag it to the homescreen. Long prss it on the homescreen and drag it down to the dock (which is where it was before). )I don't use TouchWiz any more, so that's from memory - you may be able to drag it directly from the Apps drawer to the dock.)

    You''re not actually moving it from the Apps drawer, you're creating a shortcut in the dock.

    Also, pressing a blank spot on the homescreen brings up a menu, IIRC, that has Shortcuts on it. One of them is probably Internet. (If not Shortcuts, then Apps.) Pressing that will put it on the homescreen and you can drag it to the dock.

    Thanks rukbat . It almost works lol. Wen I drag my chrome app down to the bottom four shortcuts their now they will blink as I pass over them but it won't let me drop it there. But it does work on friends note 4 remember that I have rooted my device and I will leave it rooted until I figure out to remove carrier start up animations. Maybe I've got to unroot it for it to work.

    It's been a while since I used TouchWiz (like until 15 minutes after I owned the phone. It's almost the first thing I get rid of.) You have to drag Chrome to the homescreen, let go of it, then drag it to the dock. (The only reason I haven't completely uninstalled TW is to answer questions like this one.)
