Old storm window problem

I have old wood storm windows over my old double hungs.

In order to remove them I have to unscrew from outside and give them an nudge from the inside. Well one of the windows is now permanently sealed shut until I can afford new windows.

However, now I cant remove the storm by pushing from inside.

I was thinking of screwing a handle on the front of them. But I was wondering if there was a standard solution for such a problem? Would that look tacky?

Another idea was screwing an eye hook into a corner so I can simply grab it with a pair of pliers and pull forward enough to get my hands around the frame.

Im sure someone can come up with the best plan for me.... please advise.

Actually your own suggestions seem like the best solution.

Whenever I have to deal with a stubborn storm window I usually insert my putty knife and try to gently work the storm loose that way.
