photoshop – cut and move part of a shape layer

In photoshop, i have a “speech bubble” of sorts.

I need to be able to move the little triangle bit of the bubble left, right, and to the side.

Then “rejoin” it with the rectangle, and apply all the gradent/bevel effects of the original.

photoshop has a selector tool, but i cannot seem to cut, coppy, delete with it – actually, i do not understand why the rectangle selector exists (unless maybe there is a market for people who like pretty transient rectangles?)

So, for pictures –

this is the intial image i want to move around:
this is the intial image i want to move around:

this is the image with all the stuff removed, i just want to move that triangle around!!
this is the image with all the  stuff removed, i just want to move that triangle around!!

And then of course reapply the effects that i disabled. I imagine this is a super simple job – how do i do this?

Answer

Since you already have this as a shape layer, you can easily select the points (Direct Selection Tool) and hold shift to move your triangle area.
