Okay, I'm trying to visualize this. If the screen is on the inside, and it does not move, then how do you get a grip on the window panel you are trying to slide open? Wouldn't it then be behind the screen when the window was closed and thus un-grabbable? Does the window somehow slide out from *behind* the screen through a channel that is "muffled" by weatherstripping or something
I keep thinking that the sliding pane would have to close in front of the screen (thereby leaving the screen on the outside) so that you could reach it to slide it back and forth.
I grew up with "double hung" windows (in houses), which are kind of like sliders on their sides, and I always liked the fact that the screens *were* on the outsides, because that way you did not trap whining mosquitoes in them when you closed them.
I'll have to go look around for photos now, or this is going to keep nagging at me. I'm sure there is something obvious I am missing, since I am a jalousie gal.
As you can tell, it drives me nuts when I can't visualize how something works!
