Window is opened frequently.

    Your first sentence isn't correct. There should be an article before "window", in this case probably "the".

She opens the window frequently.


The window is opened frequently.


The window is opened by her frequently.

Note that you need the article before "window". As seen in the first passive voice example above, the passive voice can be used to obscure who is performing the action.
