How to unlock Ultrahand?
You will unlock the Ultrahand ability when you enter the first Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom on Great Sky Island. This ability will allow you to pick up all elements of the environment and combine them with each other.
Hold L and select Ultrahand by selecting the appropriate icon with the right analog stick. To use the ability, just press L and hover over the item. If the item turns green, it means it can be picked up. Once you grab an item, you can then hold R to rotate it with the d-pad.
You can separate items that are connected at any time. Grab the item you want to separate and move the right analog stick.
