    Just use another screw of the same size. Screws aren't hard to come by.

    That pic is a tad blurry ... there are a few way, especially as you are going to throw the screw away ...

    You could put a dot of really strong clue in the top of the screw, then put a panel pin, or other strong-ish narrow piece of metal, at an angle into the glue ... let it set, then try and twist it out ...

    or a powerful magnetic 'driver ...

    or one of the zillions of other ways, that I'm sure will be suggested here [​IMG]
