Moving New Construction Window

I am wanting to move a new construction window in our home.

It has the nail fin and the J channel. I can just unscrew the window, cut out the caulk, and the window should still be good correct? Anything I need to worry about?

That's about it unless after you have taken off the inside molding you see something else holding it in.

Thankfully no molding. So unscrewing it won't damage it?

New windows are often shipped with braces holding them square. Those are now gone and the window may have dried out over time. The result is it, again, may be somewhat unstable once removed. Even something as simple as the fiber reinforced tape applied diagonally in many locations could help hold it rigid. If you could add a wood brace or two, better.
