My son is a big mountain biker and he uses Muc-Off bike chain dry lube. Works great he says.

X2- I like Tri-Flow, it is a bit expensive, but it works great.

Used spray silicone too over the years., but Tri-Flow seams to hold up longer.

X2 on the Tri-Flow and remember it's not expensive if it works! A little goes a long way and you'll still have some left 5-8 years from now.

If your windows are NOT frameless try to loosen the inside frame screws to turns. Our window frames were over tightened and we could not move the windows. I also lubricated the slide area with liquid wrench dry lube.
