how to repair a screen window stuck can't get it out to clean from a sliding window

it's a new window-slide window. The screen window is stuck by having been placed in the wrong groove and it doesn't give any spring tension at all?

Hello tcgallardo and welcome to the community!


I look at it this way, the screen went in the wrong groove, it will come out with a little patients and a thin putty knife. Try to wedge the putty knife under the screen frame as you or someone else pushes the frame on the other side towards the putty knife, this should hopefully release the screen. 


The other option is to call the manufacture of your new window and see if they can offer suggestions, I'm sure they have had this happen before.
