Removal Casement Window Interior Handle

I am looking to shrink wrap a couple of windows for the winter months and would like to figure out how to remove the interior window handle only so the wrap fits sung. I don't see a screw to do this but there is a small hole under the handle, not sure if it has a very small screw or if it is pushed with a pin and pops out. See 2 images taken with my cell phone, silly question but I can't see a way to do it easily. The third image shows a crop of the handle arm, this is all I need to remove to make it work. Thanks for any info or help.

There is no need to remove the handle.
The shrink wrap gets attached to the casing not the window.

++++ on the casement installation for the film.

This allows you protect the interior from cold through gaps if the moveable portion is a little loose. The only problem is with loose a window that billows out the shrink wrap so that it can interfere with some venetian blind installations.

This is new construction. New windows. No need for any supplementary covering. Make sure your windows are sealed from the outside with tyvek and window tape, and the gaps between the window and the framing are insulated with minimally expanding foam.
