Hi twera99 It looks like your windows are on the first floor and you have fire escape windows. Normally the windows in the fully open position will split the window about 1/3 and 2/3. If the fire escape latch is released (or missing in your case) the window can be moved right back allowing escape. You may have to replace the hinges, I doubt a repair will be successful . Regards S
