I have the type where the cords pass thru a hole in the sill and then thru a button type thing on the bottom. The string is just tied with a large knot that keeps it from going thru. Less tension will make them very easy to operate and more just the opposite
On one of my shades the cord somehow broke the button and pulled thru.
Lucky for me the knot kept it from going up into the shade. I thought I would have to get it professionally repaired.
Place something under the shade to keep it open about 18" then untie the knot to give yourself as much cord as you can, being very careful not to let the cord go up into the shade. Then just use a screw with a metal washer on top or the bottom of the sill. Pull the cord down with a needle nose pliers to the correct tension and wrap it around the screw and tighten. On many of the sills the screw will have to be placed on the top due to the fact that the bottom is not accessible because of cabinets
