Adjusting window blinds

The window blinds on our large window won't stay in the up position. Is there an adjustment I am not seeing? At first I thought the strings were too loose, but after looking at the other blinds the tension seems similar.

Thanks, Tom

Mine won't stay up. Is it the same fix?

We had the exact same problem with our Designer rear window shade (day/night). I think it is just too heavy, being the longest one in the unit. Solved the problem by putting a small screw in the frame, one on each side, back behind the side curtain where it doesn't show. Now, I just raise the blind until the plastic bar can go over the screw, and blind will not come down unless you want it to.
