It might have a busted plastic thread socket stuck on the end of that screw. Go ahead and remove all the other necessary screws and pry it apart. Often there is a screw under the feet cusions. Remove them from one side to see if there might be a screw fastened under those foot pads and follow through on the other side accordingly, before trying to pry it appart.

Continue turning with screwdriver while pushing it from under? If not possible and the screw's head is out, jam a smaller screwdriver under the screw's head lifting it up while turning it with the other screwdriver.

Tighten it back and drill the head off.

As someone has already stated, you can use a magnetic screwdriver or better yet, tip it up and tap on the corner.
Also note that there are some screws which are set in with a loss prevention lock, which allows you to loosen them, but they cannot be lifted out, so when the case is opened, the screw will remain with that section and not be lost.

Use a magnetic screwdriver. Tip it up and tap on the corner. The screw will lift out anyway when you remove the plastic frame.

Try wiggling the screw with a screw driver

Get a magnet or turn it upside down ffs
