Solved!

Can the air intake on the front of a Omen HP Destop PC 880 be accessed for cleaning

HP Destop PC 880
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a new HP Desktop PC 880 and I can see through the air intake slots on the front dust and fluff beginning to build upon the grill in front of the fan.  For the life of me, I can't see any way to access this area short of disassembling the front of the PC.  Does anyone know if there is any way to access this area?  I can blow the dust off the grill but it will still be trapped in the space between the front panel and the grill so will present an ongoing issue which is only going to build up.  If this area can't be easily accessed it seems like a bit of a design shortcoming.

Thanks REO for your swift and comprehensive response to my question.  Those videos should be better advertised as they answer most of the questions I have had about maintaining the PC.
