Place them aside carefully as they are really small. Finally, once the screws are out gently apply pressure and slide the screen up to release the panel. Careful not to be too rough with it.

It's in there pretty good and tight so you need to slide it up to release the screen, just don't be too rough with it as it's still delicate but it will come loose. You may need to work at it a little bit.
