Hi there, any ideas on how to open this window? The handle is stuck, wont budge. The window is stuck in the ajar position, cant open or close properly. When i put the key in, the key turns as normal but handle still doesn't budge. Any ideas? Hoping not to call a locksmith out or break the window. Thank you for any help in advance.

Some buttons push in to lock, have you tried wiggling it with the key in to see if it pops out any further ?

The push button has likely failed and when you press it its not fully pushing the plunger out the way, get up on some steps and look in the gap where it pivots, shuffle a credit card in there to release the plunger, its not disimilar to slipping a yale lock with a card like you see on the films, faulty handle thats all, common fault and no need for a locksmith, handles are a fiver
