The frames are made up of 2 L shape sections held together by a bar. The bar is held in place by 4 screws, 2 in each section ( 2 L shapes, 2 bars, 4 screws per bar). Best remove the all screws, once removed grab the long (hold the window vertically) sides of the L sections and pull away from each other.

That doesn't even make sense to me lol.

Remove screws x 4 first, the bars are inside the frame so ignore the " remove bars", then pull long section away from each other

Good work Splitty61!
Gold star for skylights.
Pop out frames just separate once you've undone one set of screws from each join hopefully!
