My window quit working so I tried to get the door panel off but it seems like there is a screw behind the door handle that I can't get to that is holding the door panel on.

How do I get to the screw ???

I have searched for the past hour and I can't find it.

No, I can't even SEE the bolt/screw. I need to know how to get to it.... It is behind the handle (thing you use to pull the door closed when you are inside the car)

The little panel behind the handle that hides the only screw on the door is held in place by some very hi-tech, super adhesive, top secret stuff........... It's called Velcro :shhh:

Yup Ranger nails it, as always... if that's the "handle" you're talking about.

There are also two clips around the door arm rest assembly... once you pull release all the fastners around the edge of the door panel, slightly pull the edges of the door panel away from the door to clear the fastners and the two pastic bosses (otherwise you will break them) and lift upward - this will disengage the two clips behend the door arm rest assembly (they usually fall to the ground).

Make sure you also remove the manual door lock trim.

But, DO NOT try to put the panel back on in reverse. It will be like trying to push a wet noodle through a hole. Take those two clips that just fell to the floor and slide them back onto the door panel. Line them up and push them in. If you push them in and try to slide the door onto them, you'll be there forever and likely never succeed.
