Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Not sure I understand if you can see these screws why not just remove them? I have not seen window screens screwed to the frame maybe this is something new. Could it be you don't have a Robertson bit to remove them? just wondering

Are you certain that they don't just pop out? I've never seen them screwed in permanently. If it's a factory installed screw, you probably need one of these to take them out. https://www.amazon.com/SQUARE-ROBINS.../dp/B000U0A4NI
That might not be the exact size, but it's the type you're looking for.

Welcome to the forum!

Sorry. I've no idea how to remove them. Usually ours popped out when we put a screwdriver at the bottom and lifted it slightly to pop them out.

Put your fingertips on the screen frame at the bottom. Push down as hard as you can. You will feel the screen go deeper in the channel, flattening the springs beneath it. If you push hard enough, your partner will be able to pull the top part of the frame inward. Once the top is free of the channel, you can lift the screen out.

I suppose it's possible that the springs could be at the top. You might have to do the reverse: push top up, pull bottom in.

Let us know how it goes.
