If you do not have the proper tools,(proper tools are recommended) and depending on the type of backing, this may help you :

Does it screw off or is it a pop off? If it is a screw off you need a jax tool and read the instructions. If it is a pop off you need a tool and find the indentation or tab to lift up on to pop off the back. I use a Testors razor knife because it is strong and thin but Always Use Eye Protection when doing this. Most folks do not undertake this. If you do remember you have to more often than not need a watch presser to press the back back on. You can find them on watchmaker supplie sites (or Ebay or similar shady places). This is a necessary item to have to do this and most people do not undertake this unless they plan on doing this often. Novices using a case press often includes shattering the crystal when they do not know what they are doing. It takes experience and research to do the most common watch repairs.

Stainless steel bracelet ends (so called wings) must be curved flush to the watch case.
Another way is to use curved spring lugs (pins).

OK, I make an attempt:
I saw on other pictures on the web that the links have small holes at the side. There should be some links with arrows r another marking. These are usually the links that can be removed to shorten the strap.
If there is a small arrow on the link, it means that you can push out the pin inside the hole in the direction of the arrow. Then the link can be detached.
You can push it out with a blunt sewing needle (break off the tip).
Remove links on both sides of the watch when resizing it.
Hope that helps.
