    Hi Devin!

    To do this, you would use the "Detach" function. Right-click on the task you want to detach in the list view and select the detach command. Keep in mind though that when you detach it from the parent task, it might also detach it from the folder! If the folder is slightly grayed out, that means it's in that folder because the parent task is. Just be sure to manually tag the task before you detach it and you're golden!

    Folder grayed out (task is in the folder because the parent task is)

    Not grayed out (task is directly tagged to this folder)

    Hi Devin, if you're in the Gantt view, select the task then hit "Ctrl + ["ย ย (control keyย plusย left bracket).ย  Conversely, you can use "Ctrl + ]"ย (control keyย plusย right bracket) to turn a task into a sub-task of a task at an equivalent level above.
