Locking lever

A quick learner from Mn says:
How do you unlock a window with a broken locking lever?
I cannot access the mounting screws without opening the
Window. Can't open the window because it is locked.

Dave from SWISCO responded:
Is this for a casement window? If so, I'm afraid there is no simple solution for this problem. If you cannot manually throw the lock somehow, either with a screwdriver or some other tool, you will need to cut the lock base from the window. I would recommend contacting a local professional to do this for you.
