How to remove these window screens?

Hello. Here is the screen:



Here are the bottom right and left corners, respectively:





These windows can be removed. I unlatched them, tilted them forward, and raised the screen up to the top of the window frame. Here's the top right of the screen. The highlighted part in the photo is blocking the screens from coming out forward:



Likewise, a similar piece stops in from coming out backward:



So how do I get these things out? Thanks.

You normally will grab the rings on one side or the other...push to the opposite side and then swing the side you are gripping in or out. Normally the channel it is in has one side slightly narrower than the other which tells you whether to go in or out, but not always. You just need to experiment on where the leaf springs that hold it in place are. You may be able to look at the sides and see which has the bigger gap, thats the way you push the screen.

Worked like a charm. Thanks.
