    Unlock the latch.  Put a small spray of WE40 in each corner, wait a minute then raise the window.

    You need to make sure that the lock in the middle is completely unlocked. Probably want to turn the latch until it’s all the way to the left. Then you need to pull the little latch on both sides of the windows towards the middle then lift up to open it. If that doesn’t work then try pulling the window towards you to make the crescent shape thing fits into the window groove.

    It may be that the latch is not fully opened. If the house has been painted since their installation it may be that the sash has been painted shut. If you move both releases( either side of the sash) towards the center and pull forward the sash should drop forward.
