There is a simpler method:
1. Click and hold down one icon so that you go to the "move/delete" mode:
2. In the folder select whatever you want to move out and drag it to the right most part of screen -> (The folder part moves to the left creating more space) -> Simply Drop the icon here -> it will go outside..
3. Then continue with moving more icons out etc..
4. If you hold it long enough to the right it exits the folder too so that you can move betweenpages to drop it anywhere you want..
Hope that helps..
