How do I change a summary back to a regular task in Microsoft Project 2013

First off, let me say, that I'm absolutely astounded at how non-intuitive this software is.  Powerful doesn't automatically denote that everything must be difficult to use.  Even moving items around and inserting and deleting stuff is ridiculously cumbersome, and doesn't work as it does in Excel.

Anyway, I've created a summary task, but I'm not sure how to turn it back into a regular task, without deleting and recreating that line item.  Please assist, thanks.

If it has children (indented directly below it) it is a summary task.

If you want to stop something being a summary then go to the child rows and hit Alt+Shift+Left until they are the same level of indent (or higher).
