Kitchen window operator broke

The operator normally would be attached to the bottom of the window frame, and operation is done by turning the handle clock wise or counter clock wise, now it appears the mechanism have detached from the window frame, any idea how to fix or should I call in a specialist? See photo for details.

Looks like it just slipped out of the track. Happens sometimes with one of the casement windows I have as wll.

If yoi look at the bottom of the window glass closely, there should be a small cut-out in the track. When you manually push the window and align that cutout with the closing arm(not sure it is the right term), you can guide the arm back inside the track.

Happened to me too when someone opened the window too far. The extender came out of the window side.
Extend to max and the two "roller or slider" ends will fit back into the slot and then slowly crank it closed is while keeping pressure on the window. It will slide back into the track.
The Government cannot give to anybody anything that the Government does not first take from somebody else.
