Normally there will be one screw straight up on each end of the blind. Pull the blind all the way down and the screw will be through the last fold of the fabric.
Then there will be either one or two brackets that hold the square tube in place. You push up a little while twisting the blind out on the top. Short blinds will have one right in the middle, longer ones will have two spaced so as to section the blind into thirds.
BUT you say the blind will not stay up? Do you mean when you open the blind to the top the shade falls back down? As long as the cords are not broken, you can tighten the tension at the bottom bracket that holds the cord. One or two more wraps around the knob/bracket adds tension and that's what keeps the blind up.
If the entire assembly is falling down, take it down. If just the shade won't stay shut, just tighten the tension.
