Ah, I see. Well, it would depend on what you have, exactly. Could you show us a couple pictures? That will help us determine what you need to do to remove your storm window latches.
A quick learner says:
This is one that is not broken. The one I can't open is missing the tabs.

Thank you. This is an old latch. I'm not sure if we can help replace it, but at the very least we can help you come up with a way to remove it from the window. Can you remove that sash from the main frame of the window? You will need to check and see if the storm sash corner is held together with a screw or is it stamped together. We have a couple videos that I think may help you. Check them out below.
Let me know if these helped.
