Hi, my name's Andrew Dryden, and I'm going to show you how to change an aluminum frame window screen. Things you'll need: aluminum window screen access to interior, screwdriver, which is optional, and pliers, which are also optional. First, open the window, the screen is on from the inside. Do not remove the screen from the outside. Locate the clips, or tabs, that hold the screen to the window frame; there can be two or four of them on the inside of the screen. Use the tabs to dislodge the window screen from the frame. Be gentle with the amount of force you use to remove the aluminum frame screen since the material is easily bent. If the tabs are stuck, use either the screwdriver or the pliers to move them to dislodge the screen from the window frame. And finally, pick up the screen when it falls outside the window. And that is how you remove an aluminum frame window screen.
