old school awning removal

I have bought a 50 year old home that has original aluminum awnings over 2 windows. Does anyone have experience with removal of these awnings . Any advice would be appreciated . Thanks

You generally just disconnect the arms that are mounted partway down on the window, then there are screws on the header track that get removed.

No arms on side

The awning does not have arms on the side but rather full side panel. Tried to download a picture but it wouldn’t download. I wondered if I simply removed screws at the bottom of awning on the inside of the awning might tilt up and off header bracket? I can see the screw along top of awning above the awning but they would be tough to get to because of projection distance from the house.

link doesn't work
If the awning doesn't have arms/brackets it most likely has screws were the sides are bent in.

Regardless, you have screws midway down that keep the sides from spreading. If you can't see the screws on top above the awning, then the awning clips into the header track. You just lift the awning, hinging it upward and then pull it out of the track. Once the awning is removed, you remove the screws in the header track.
