Default how to 'uncombine' polygons

How can a divide the head from the rest of my model? I am sure there is an easy way to do it but I cant find it (shame on me). Even search in the forums dont give me much :-S

I have tried to separate without much success.. I am probably using it the wrong way.

Thanks!

Select the faces, edit polygons > extract.

Not necessarily true. If there are objects combined together that have not been merged together, edit polygons > seperate will still seperate them whether or not the combine history is still in place.
