I am confused:

I was wondering if you would mind me opening the window.

or

I was wondering if you would mind me open the window.

Which one is correct?

Only the first sentence is grammatical, but the second one would be with a slight change:

✔ I was wondering if you would mind me opening the window.
✔ I was wondering if you would mind if I open the window.

Note that in the second version, opened can also be used.


A more direct way of asking this is simply:

Do you mind me opening the window?
Do you mind if I open the window?

Generally speaking, the last version is the most common.
