With your finger nails or a blade.
Pheonix is right, just scrape the eggs off, don't worry about getting them all of as long as you have a fresh water tank, they need brackish water to hatch (not sure if you already knew that)

I scrape it all off right before my water changes, thus I don't have to worry about it staying in my water.

Don't usually even use a blade. A rough aquarium sponge usually does well enough for the glass. On hardscape I usually just leave them.

I just scrape them off the tank walls with a piece of plastic - it's the bit from the cut out from an old tank lid.
My decor is wood and it's impossible to get the eggs off that without removing the surface of the wood so I just leave them there.

The eggs just stay there, they don't grow anything nasty.

It may leave a little oval shaped residue and that’s where the blade comes in.

I’ve just got used to the look of them and just leave them.

If the snail is still in the tank, there will be more eggs, I'd just ignore the ones on the deco, and scrape the glass
