How do I use my Logic Bluetooth Keyboard to move apps?

Hi Folks:

Using a Bluetooth keyboard with the iPad Air2, I am able to create folders and move files in to folders but I can't for the life of me, figure out how to move files out of folders with the keyboard.
Any help would be appreciated all over the place.

I didn't think you could create folders and move files with a Bluetooth keyboard. I'd also be interested in how this is done.

Hello all. I have not created folders much because when I started moving apps with a bt keyboard I already had them made. I would imagine it would not be much different then the steps to move them. First you find the app you want to move and hit shift, Voice over keys (control and option), and the letter M. to move. The apps will do their jiggle thing. Now move with the VO keys and arrow commands. You can even move to a different screen. When you are on the folder you want the app in just hit VO keys and the space bar to drop the app there. It will say folder opening now just wait and you will be on the home screen still in edit mode. Just hit home button to exit it. Repeat steps for other apps.

It seens that for VO on IOS double tap and hold is equivalent to accessing the "context menu" on mac .... can you delete apps this way also?

I did this once and it asked if I wanted to delete the ap. I then did it again and instead of doing the spacebar for double tap I did the vo command with shift and m and it did its thing. Once its done its thing I take it in the folder text you can re name it?

I love my apple keyboard but i'll be glad when I've had a bit more training to do this via touch.
