How do the screens come off?

We are camping in dusty FL, heavy morning dew parked along side dusty roads. The few awning windows we have open are starting to show dust on the inside surface. How can we remove the inside mosquito screens to clean the inner window surface? Looks like removing the lower window shade aluminum triangle is the 1st step?

The screens just snap out. No tools needed. There are wire clips that snap into the frame around the edges of the screen - just pull the screen frame up along the edge and it will pop out.

ps. the exit window screen has a handle to pull to remove the screen.

Removing screens

Thanks for the help. We removed one of the awning window screens. A little tugging and it came right out. Fairly easy to snap back in also. Alf, send us your grand daughter, she would be a great assistant.
