Default add to a group?

I made a group but forgot to add a couple other objects into the group, is there anyway to add them in without having to make a new group?

when I tried to delete the group it deleted all the objects

I'll try the middle mouse drag

edit: Middle mouse drag worked great. I had to change from sort alphabetically to sort by hierarchy

grouping just creates a blank transform node with no associated shape node, and then parents the selection under it.

Grouping = to parenting except that a new transform is made.
