Pull out subfolders from a folder

Things I have tried

Hi there, I need a little help.
In Obsidian I created a folder with subfolders inside. How can I now pull some subfolders out of the folder if I need?
Thanks in advance for your answers

What I’m trying to do

Dragging the subfolder out of the parent folder doesn’t work.

Right click the folder and choose “move folder to…”

Like @Viktor_Sirin said, or if you are dragging with the mouse, drag to the name of your vault. That is the root folder of your vault.


If those don’t work, something strange might be happening. But if you were just dragging out to the bottom of the file explorer, yeah that doesn’t work.


Thanks Viktor and Rigmarole, Both methods work!
