I assume you have the windows that swing open from the bottom, and that the screen covers the whole window on the inside.
So, open the window widely and vacuum out the frame and the outside of the screen, then vacuum the inside of the screen. From the outside use a damp sponge to wipe the screen and the frame, and something in a spray bottle for stubborn dirt like bug poop, etc. While you are at it, use windex or your favorite window cleaner on both sides of the glass, then go inside and wipe down the inside of the screen. Apply Formula 309 to the gasket to make opening it easier to open in the future. Let everything dry before closing and fastening the window.
Hehr windows which were?/are? Used in the basic Safari/Flying Cloud line may have been dropped around 2010. The "SE" Safari also had the big single pane glass, and it probably became more cost effective to make everything with a single style. Hehrs are fixed in place and have small sliders at the bottom of the window. On those, just open the glass and clean both sides of the screen. (Hehr windows are standard on many SOBs.)
