How to easily remove the screw cover that is found on the socket on the wall?

Update:

Thanks for the replies but what i was actually asking for the removal of screw cover, which is like a small button that is placed to hide the screw. It is usally found at the side of socket.

    With a screwdriver.

    No, seriously, if you're just changing the plate, then just unscrew it and replace it. Just don't get the screwdriver anywhere near the socket itself. If you want to be safer, shut off the power before doing so.

    Not exactly sure what you are asking but remove the screw in the center of the plate and pull it from the wall.

    if you're suggesting removing the cover plate and can't

    see how it's done. May I suggest you read up a little on

    electricity and/or ask around for some help with someone

    that has knowledge in the subject -- it can be dangerous--

    Use a screwdriver to turn the screw counter-clockwise until it falls out. It doesn't get any easier than that.
