I need to replace the screen and keep the. White around it. How do I do that

You have to use a hair dryer on high on the screen until you can get it loose from the white frame. Carefully pry under the screen with a small screwdriver or a plastic tool to get it loose and then run the plastic tool around the edges until it is loose. It is held in by some type of double sided tape.
