Need help identifying retractable window manufacturer for repair

We just moved into our new house and some of the windows have built-in retractable screens that need repair. I am unable to identify the manufacturer and could use some help. For two of them the clip that secures the retractable screen broke off and for others the screen does not cover the entire window and needs to be readjusted. I wonder if/how the retractable screens can be removed/replaced? See pictures below. Thanks!

Can't help you identify the windows, but you might try contacting the window parts places; they often can help identify the needed parts. Two are Swissco and Window Hardware Direct; there are others.

Look at all sides of the window and sash, including the bottom of the window. Manufacturers sometimes put the serial number or job number on a sticker somewhere to help identify if you break the glass and need to order a replacement.

You can also check with building suppliers in your area to see what brands are commonly sold. You can try big box stores but don't neglect lumber yards and building suppliers that provide primarily to contractors and not homeowners.

If you open the window and there is no gold NFRC/AAMA sticker on the top of the frame, you are probably SOL.
