Thank you for your patience in this matter. I know what this is. This is a temporary handle. When you buy the window, you're supposed to take this off and then put the new one on. Did your window come with the actual handle?

If not, you could start by looking at our 39-290 and 39-291 and see if either of these are a match.
A quick learner says:
Hi, thank you for your help. I recently bought a house and this is what the window looks like. do I take off this handle? and if yes, how?

To remove it, you must first depress the spring.
