How do I remove the pin from this hinge?

First time homeowner, here, so I appreciate your patience.

I need to remove a door to bring in a piece of furniture. I've knocked out hinge pins in the past but I've never seen one like this (see picture) and so far I can't get it to budge. Anyone seen this or know what to do?

Thanks for your time and help.

That appears to be a spring loaded hinge. You can see the horizontal stop pin for adjusting spring tension. Usually the hinge pins aren't intended to be removed. The whole hinge must be removed from one side. You may be able to do it without relieving tension by holding the hinge leaf while removing the screws.

The hinge pin does not come out to remove hinge.
You will need something like a drift pin that fits in the hole so the pin can be rotated enough to remove that pin and relocate it a few times to relieve the pressure on the spring.
Once the pressures off you remove the whole hinge.
