Window handle/frame problem


We have a window handle which is screwed into the frame, but a small piece of the plastic holding one of the screws in place has broken off (the screw on the right).



Because the screw and therefore handle aren't held completely in place, the window is hard to open and close.

Do I need to replace the frame/window? Or would it be possible to repair the broken segment? Recommendations are much appreciated.

Not pretty but cheaper then a whole new sash, try what's called a fender washer, may also need a longer screw.
A fender washer has a small hole but a larger outside diameter.
