Hello Killian and welcome to the best darn DIY'r site on the web.

A picture is worth a thousand words, some DH windows aren't meant to be removed, easily that is.

The sash is often spring loaded to one side. Try pushing to either side, if it moves one way, that is it. Another method was to break the track at the top or bottom enough to allow the sash to swing out.

Remove for replacement or for service?
