    Can we use "open the curtains"?

    Hi,

    We can use "close the curtains".
    Can we use "open the curtains"?

    Should my sentence in the inverted commas start with a capital?

    Yes, you can use "open the curtains".

    If your two examples are sentences, then yes, they should be capitalized.

    I would add the word 'please' to either end of your sentences.

    "Please open the curtains." "Close the curtains please."
